I go to a website that requires a Java plug-in. I downloaded the latest update (21) for Java 7 from Oracle but when I go to Add-Ons>Plugins in Firefox 20 the Java plug-in doesn't appear and when I do a search at the Get Add-ons nothing that mentions the Java Plug-in shows up. Where can I get the plug-in required to use with JRE7u21?
Mac OS 10.7.5, Firefox 20.0, Java Runtime Environment 7 update 21
You can find the latest Java version on the Oracle website.
See Java Platform > Java SE 7U21 and 6U45 (JRE Download)
Please read my question where I said I had already done that. After installing the 7U21 version, my Java plug-in was gone from my computer.
For your info there are 3 Java packages available at the Java SE page: JDK; SERVER JRE; JRE I downloaded the last as 1) I'm not a developer, and 2) I don't run a server
You only see plugins on the aboutlugins page if they show as installed and enabled on the "Tools > Add-ons > Plugins" page.

That is the problem. Previously I had Java SE JRE 7 update 17 installed on my iMac. I was told to install Update 21 so I did. Update 21 REMOVED the "Java Plugin for JRE7u17", but did NOT install it's replacement. All I need to know is WHERE I can get the plugin "Java Plugin for JREu21" that AFAIK SHOULD have been installed by the Java SE 7 update #21?
I've read all the links multiple times but NONE of them either help or answer the above question.
One thing I've learned is that IF I get Java working again, I will NOT be installing any more Java Updates from Apple or Oracle, nor will I be installing any more Security Updates from Apple as they all seem to disable Java since January 2013.
