Java won't work on Firefox, while it works on Safari on a Mac.

I have a MacBook Pro and downloaded Firefox 3.6 for it. Now I've realized that Java plugins won't work in Firefox for some reason, while they do work in Safari that came with the Mac. The problem wouldn't be with Java, since it works on Safari.

The Java-related plug-ins I have installed in Firefox are the Java Embedding Plug-in 0.9.7.3 and Java Plug-in 2 for NPAPI browsers.

When I go to a page that contains a Java applet, there is no error, the page says it's done loading, and there's a blank spot where an applet is supposed to be.

I think that you only need one of the plugins.
You can try to only install the "Java Plug-In 2 for NPAPI Browsers" plugin to see if that works.

Actually, I have both plugins installed in Mac OS X 10.6, verified by entering about:plugins in the SeaMonkey 2 Location Bar (address bar)

Java Embedding Plugin 0.9.7.3
File name: MRJPlugin.plugin

Java Plug-In 2 for NPAPI Browsers
File name: JavaPlugin2_NPAPI.plugin

This is a new iMac computer I just set up last week running OS X 10.6.4 with all current Apple Software Updates. I have SeaMonkey 2 installed on it, but not Firefox.

I have Java 6 Update 20 ( 1.6.0_20 ) installed, verified by going to the test link in the KB article I posted above, http://javatester.org/version.html

Java 1.6.0_20 (referred to as "Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 2" on the page cor-el linked) should be available from Apple's Software Update feature.

Another test link you can try (from about:plugins): http://browserspy.dk/java.php

I think that the Java Embedding plugin is something that Mozilla includes with all its current browsers (Firefox, SeaMonkey, Camino) based on: http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/OSX.html#Java ...which links to http://javaplugin.sourceforge.net/
