    Firefox 3.6 missing Tools>>Options>>Content >>Java (where did it go?)

    I was trying out the recommended wifi stumbler
    (http://tools.meraki.com/stumbler) but it needs Java which I've had
    installed for years on Windows XP SP3.

    However, in Firefox 3.6, Tools>>Options>>Content>>Java is MISSING!

    There's Tools>>Options>>Content>>JavaScript but no line item for Java (I'm
    sure it used to be there before I upgraded to Firefox 3.something).

    Where did Tools>>Options>>Content>>Java go?

    Firefox 3.5.7 had an obvious "Enable Java" checkbox preference:
    Tools=>Options=>Content=>Enable Java

    Firefox 3.6 does not:
    about:config security.enable_java user set boolean true
    Tools=>Add-ons=>Plugins=>Java(TM) Platform SE 6 U11 6.0.110.3

    Users with security concerns in Firefox 3.5.7 who disabled Java will have
    Java silently enabled by default in Firefox 3.6:
    https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb...n+with+Firefox

    There is no migration path.
    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=506985

    Firefox 3.6 users must expressly turn off the Java application:
    https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb...f+Java+applets

    Firefox 3.6 supports only NPAPI Java plugins (not OJI/XPCOM/LiveConnect):

    JRE Installation for Microsoft Windows:
    http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnote...l-windows.html

    How do I test whether Java is working & what version on my computer?

    Yep, it's gone all right. I don't have the JRE installed so I didn't
    notice. You might want to consider the QuickJava extension:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1237

    "Allows quick enable and disable of Java, Javascript, Flash, Silverlight
    and Images from the status bar."

    and as many posts from anonymous remailers (like x-privat.org for eg.)
    as possible due to forgeries posted through them.

    Sombody is forging posts from me to various other newsgroups. If
    something looks fishy, check the headers to make sure that the message
    is from either Computer Country or Eternal-September, the only services
    I post through. I recommend looking at either the Path statement or the
    Message-ID ending for that info.

    No ad, CD, commercial, cripple, demo, nag, share, spy, time-limited,
    trial or web wares OR warez for me, please.
