My question is similar to "Java Plug-in for JRE7u21?" but all the suggestions there that worked are for Windows, and I'm on a Mac, and I don't want to hijack that thread. For the record, that thread is /questions/958847. aw

I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, Firefox 24.0, which says it's up to date, and Java 7 update 45, also up to date. I only want answers for Mac OS X, not Windows, not Linux.

The online Java test works OK in Safari but not in Firefox. Firefox thinks Java is not installed. There's no "Java Applet Plug-in" in the plug-ins list.

Since Safari is OK, I assume there's a bug in Firefox. Can we narrow it down by identifying which combinations of versions (of Mac OS X, Firefox and Java) have the Java plug-in and which don't?

somehow, I've managed to 'acquire' 'SearchAssist.com' that highlights random words on a page and frequently tries to redirect (thus resetting my browser) me to websites I have no interest in. I've searched online for information, and it appears to be a Yahoo product, but I don't use Yahoo, and all the instructions I've found are for Internet Explorer. I even removed Firefox and reloaded it, but nothing seems to work. HELP! And now, I can't get the troubleshooting button to work. What a waste of time.

My Firefox is completely unresponsive. I can't get a browser or anything. I just grabbed the application folder and threw it in the trash, because the add/remove program function did nothing. I also cannot download the newest version of Firefox. It tries, but then says, "Your download was interrupted".

How can I make sure I've removed ALL of the old Firefox and what can I do to download the new one?

I have tried

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and change from the default (about:newtab) to about:blank.

When i double click on the browser.newtab.url it gives me the option to edit the url address. If i delete it or if i replace it with about:blank it just goes back to the url it has set.

Status: user set, Type: string, Value: http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3314958&octid=EB_ORIGINAL_CTID&SearchSource=69&CUI=&SSPV=EB_SSPV&Lay=1&UM=2&UP=SP31A63AA1-176A-4724-A794-2FC07C141F7E

The last time i had this issue i solved it by deleting and reinstalling firefox. I don't want to do that every time this happens. Ideally I would like to be able to type into the address bar automatically when I open a new tab, without clicking there. That was my previous setting and it seemed to change without reason. It did not come back when i reinstalled firefox.

Each time I do a google search in firefox, and click on any of the suggested sites, I get a large pop-up window with the address www.strtsrv.com, followed by a lot of "rubbish" numbers and letters. I've tried everything fomr blocking this site address in my firefox privacy settings, to going into my "about:config" and making alterations/additions on the "privacy.popups" section as suggested by various help sites, but to no avail. I have checked my firefox and ad-ons and found nothing suspicious there. Am at a loss. The only progress I have made is when the pop-up does appear, I have managed to get firefox not to open the content in the pop-up window, but the empty widow still appears which I then have to remove with a delete click.

Is it something to do with Java?

It is very frustrating. Help!

I made my services account yesterday on Windows, to prepare to move to Linux (first time). I synced all my data (I waited until sync is done), I closed FF and said goodbye to windows. After I installed Linux I wanted to restore my data from services on Firefox (all bookmarks, passwords, plugins, history), but FF was unable to download anything. It said that sync is finished but none of the bookmarks or passwords were downloaded. Is there any history of syncs where I could recover my old profile?

Firefox started telling me that I needed Adobe Flash to play videos, despite the fact that I have the latest version installed. I followed the instructions to install five times, yet still kept getting the same message. I then reset Firefox and it worked for about half an hour then I got the same message. In desperation I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox but am still getting the same message. I am using Windows 7 64 bit, version 24.0 of Firefox and version 11.9.900.117 of Adobe Flash. I have no problems with Internet Explorer or Chrome.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks, John Wafford.

Dear Sir's. I'm working as an IT support for a company. We use the latest (until updated) Mozilla Firefox 24.0 in order to run the financial program of our company. This requires Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.25 in order to run.

The problem starts when a user needs to access another site and this site requires Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0.45. As an example: The users log in a banks site to make money transfers to another bank site. The site asks them to use Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0.45 and won't let you complete the transaction unless you have the latest JRE.

I would like to know if there is a way to install both Runtime Environments and selectively use what you need for each site. The point is Using ALWAYS and for ALL sites the latest Java Runtime Enviroment. But for some specific sites (like internal one's or whatever) to have the option of choosing which Runtime to use for a site. Somehow to edit something in the about:config and make something like : If you see the address bar containing "a specific word, or Ip address, of the site" use the jre_1.6.0.25 ONLY. Of course one thing that needs to be changed, is in the about:config to make the extensions.blocklist.enable --> false

Please everyone. Is there a way to make this applicable? Any help will be greatly appreciated !

P.S. Just to answer to a question the is already in your minds. No the internal financial program/site cannot use Jre_1.7.0.45 and nothing above 1.6.0.25. The reasons i could give if asked, but i guess it's not important.

Please help !!!
