Java(TM) not showing up in add-ons after installing?

Java Deployment Toolkit shows up but not Java(TM) Runtime!

I installed a fresh copy of Mozilla Firefox and a the latest 64 and 32-bit versions of the latest Java then restarted my PC. When I run Java programs on my browser it says that I have a missing plugin...

It used to work before with the same version of Firefox but with the older Java.

Re: Java(TM) not showing up in add-ons after installing?

Please check if all your plugins are up-to-date. To do this, go to the Mozilla Plugin Check site.

Once you're there, the site will check if all your plugins have the latest versions. If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.

To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.

Done that long time ago. Yes, all of them are updated to the latest version and I've been updating all my plug-ins among other computer software since I got my computer.

The "Java(TM) Platform" add-on is not showing up, that's the problem not the update whatever thing.

I can't download it separately, so I'm gonna download Java Dev. Kit instead and replace my regular runtime.
