Hi. I am running windows XP 32bit SP3. I use Mozilla Firefox and run 'No Script'.
When i go to certain web pages i get told i need to enable java to view the page.
I have it set to enable java in my options. I have a fully up to date Java version.
Most pages are ok. It is just a few random sites that will not load.?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Sking0,

Welcome to Geeks to go! :)

Java JRE6u27 is the latest released Java (other than Java 7). I just downloaded Java 7 to see how it performs and so far no issues.

Also check to see if it is enabled in your plug-ins. Go to Tools > Add-ons > Plug-ins

See here-> Using the Java plugin with Firefox

There is also a means to test your Java on that same page under Table of Contents

What version of Firefox do you have installed? I have version 6.0.2 and had an issue with Java not being compatible (along side other Add-ons that are not compatible due to the rapid releases of Firefox) but once I installed Add-on Compatibility Reporter I've had no issues.....so far!
