ABOUT JAVA PLUGINS AND EXTENSIONS
I solved the vexation of Java in Firefox -- the plugins are not under the control of Firefox, and haven't been in a few Java Updates. They are under the
control of Java Runtime Environment (JRE). When you update Java JRE, you must go into an Administrator mode, open the Java Control
Panel>>Advanced, and expand the Java options which relate to the Browsers, any Plug-ins, and the Java QuickStarter. To play it safe, disable
(uncheck) all Mozilla or global items in these areas. Then update Firefox. Afterwards, if nothing goes wrong, you can re-enable the Java QuickStarter,
as this may affect more than just Firefox, and maybe let the other settings be checked (enabled), as this does no harm that I know of. With the Mozilla
Plug-in for the Java Console unchecked, Firefox shows (in my computer) no Java Extensions whatsoever except for Java QuickStarter. (And even
this one can be disabled as I have already shown.) The point is, Firefox does not control these Extensions -- Java Runtime controls them. And when
one version (say, Update 25) is removed, thereafter it will be impossible to remove the associated Java Extensions from Firefox without some major
Windows Registry hacking. (If even that would work.) Be proactive about this and you will not have the Firefox annoyance of multiple, inactive Java
Extensions again (with a bit of luck, eh?).
As noted frequently in this thread, these Java Extensions are really Plug-ins, and as such cannot be backed up nor restored with FEBE. And that's the way I like it. Add these to the FEBE Ignore List. I have MOVE Player from ABC-TV, and it's the same way.
