When attenption to run a Java (lasted version) app, warning security box appears (no text displayed) and then Firefox is totally locked
Using Vista, Foxfire 18.0.1 runs fine until attempting to access a site that need Java to display information. Now with the recent security warning, I first get a screen that that indicated "This plug in has security vulnerabilities -- Click here to activate Java Platform SE & U Platform."
When I click to activate, another box appears the indicates security warning. Only the box appears and at that point Foxfire is totally locked up. At that point I need to go the Task Master to kill Foxfire as well as the security popup window.
The Java Control Panel indicates that I have the latest version of Java.
This release contains fixes for security vulnerabilities. For more information, see Oracle Security Alert for CVE-2013-0422.
In addition, the following change has been made:
Synopsis: Default Security Level Setting Changed to High
The default security level for Java applets and web start applications has been increased from "Medium" to "High". This affects the conditions under which unsigned (sandboxed) Java web applications can run. Previously, as long as you had the latest secure Java release installed applets and web start applications would continue to run as always. With the "High" setting the user is always warned before any unsigned application is run to prevent silent exploitation.
It might help if you could post a link to some of the sites where Firefox locks up after you get the second security prompt, so that other users with Java 7 Update 11 can check it out. (I'm using Java 6 Update 38 so I don't get that second Java security prompt)
Re: When attenption to run a Java (lasted version) app, warning security box appears (no text displayed) and then Firefox is totally locked
I am running Java Platform 7 U 11 10.11.2.21. Firefox and Java both indicate it is the latest version. The Java plugin has been set to enabled. When in the plugin screen (Accessed by the 'tools' menu tab), I find nothing for doing a process to indicate trusted of sites so I can bypass security question of Firefox. When I click on the "This plug in has security vulnerabilities -- Click here to activate Java Platform SE & U Platform," a blank warming window appears with no text or options to select and at that point Firefox is totally locked. This happen with any site that needs Java to run (e.g., US Gov Aviation Weather) and not one unique site.
