• Mac OS X 10.7.5
  • Safari 6.0.2
  • Firefox 18.0.1
  • Java 1.6.0_37 64 bit
  • Firefox Java Applet Plugin v

Safari Preferences has the "Enable Java" box checked. Firefox has the Java Applet Plug-in installed and enabled. I don't understand why Java Applets refuse to work in either browser.

What do I need to do get to them running?

  • Does it work in Chrome?

Read this on Apple Insider. You probably don't have a Applet plugin installed on your system.


And if you did re-install it, it probably got blocked again the next day due to the malware issue: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/155735/apple-again-blocks-latest-version-of-java-through-os-x-anti-malware-system

Looks there is a fix for Snow Leopard (see Software Update) but not for Lion varieties...
