I only see the Java Deployment Toolkit plugin listed in the Add-ons

Hello everyone,
I only have Java Deployment Toolkit plugin listed and enabled, and not Java Platform SE.
I tried the steps under: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Java#Enabling_Java, but nothing works.
Help! :-)

hello, in some instances firefox may not be able to detect that the java plugin is installed, because oracle made an error in registering the java plugin for mozilla-based browsers in version 7u10 & 7u11... this will apparently just be fixed with its 7u13 release.
for different workarounds & troubleshooting steps in the meantime see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Java#Windows_installation_issues

  • Removing the Java Deployment Toolkit?

    I was wondering if it is possible to remove the Deployment ToolKit .dll from the machine or disable it in browser within an infrastructure?  I wanted to see if there are any other functionality that could be impacted I remove the deployJava1.dll from my machine or disable it in browser?
    The link below shows the following information regarding blocking or removing.
    What is the Java Deployment Toolkit?
    What happens if the Java Deployment Toolkit plug-in is blocked?
    By blocking the Java DT plug-in, the Java version detection mechanism is disabled. Therefore, when a user tries to launch a Java applet or application, that requires a specific Java version other than the active Java version on a user’s system, it will fail.
    Does this mean the application will break?  Or just that the detection mechanism will be broken for  the application version check and the app will still run?  I would like to remove these bits to ensure no version checking is done on my systems.

    Your "More System Details" doesn't show any Java plugin at all. Are you sure you have the current version installed? This test page will lead you to a download if needed:
    If you have Java installed, check whether its two plugins (Java Platform SE and Java Deployment Toolkit) are set to "Never Activate" on the Add-ons page. That disables them. Open the Add-ons page using either:
    * Ctrl+Shift+a
    * orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
    In the left column, click Plugins. Note that disabled plugins cluster at the bottom of the list.

  • Why does Firefox still tell me it's blocking Java Deployment Toolkit after I did the update?

    On the "Mozilla - Check Your Plugins" webpage, I was told that the " Java Deployment Toolkit" was vulnerable. So I did the update. But afterwards I was still told the same problem. Why? And should I care?
    Please see the attached screenshot.
    The funny thing is... I visited two sites that use Java, one being Java.com, but I did not see the black banner message of blocking.

    The Java Deployment Toolkit may be the latest version, but Oracle still hasn't fixed the security faults with that plugin; so Mozilla still has it on the Blocklist and disables it so far as to require the user to use "Ask to Activate". ''A "soft-block" - usable if needed, but needs user-action per implementation''.
    Specifically, do you have a program on your PC that actually needs that Deployment Toolkit?
    Or is your concern merely that it is disabled after updating Java?
    Very few consumer applications even use that Deployment Toolkit, which is intended for people who develop Java applications or who use applications such as various Oracle programs in the workplace.
    Going back to before Oracle bought out Sun Systems Java in 2010, that Deployment Toolkit wasn't being installed with the Java Runtime Environment for users. Java developers had to install a separate Developers Toolkit to get that Plugin - the SDK program had it.

  • Why does Firefox continue to state that the Java Deployment Toolkit is known to be vulnerable.

    The original issue with Java has been fixed yet FF continues to state the same warning which must be confusing at least and a road block for others at worst?
    There's a thread
    that 'discusses' this and the person Anthony Hughes, QA Mentor (:ashughes)
    has said that the issue should be posted here (don't know why he wouldn't do that himself, seems very unhelpful as a 'Mentor').
    So, I'm posting a question, which is really a request that the Devs remove this warning.
    It has nothing to do with my OS and also doesn't need me to Allow you to install something to gather information, just install Java and check the Plugins...

    Obviously the responder didn't check anything assuming that the responder had Java installed.
    If Java was NOT installed on the responders system, then the responder didn't bother to check 'what you get' when running FF in Safe Mode....
    When running FF in Safe Mode you get NOTHING in the menu bar and therefore you can't check Addons>Plugins to see if the warning exists.
    If the responder had read the thread in Bugzilla@Mozilla the responder would have seen that the warning was added by the FF Support Team, not an Addon.
    I suggest that someone read the other thread, possibly contact 'Hughes', install Java and actually look at the problem rather than providing useless answers to valid questions.
    And the little checkbox indicating that I'm providing the requested information has been left as 'ticked' because the above response fits that criteria - Was this Useful? - No it wasn't.

  • Java Deployment Toolkit and Japanese

    I can't figure out how to enable Japanese in Firefox. Since following existing tutorials yielded no positive results, I tried installing the latest Java, but that only made things worse. Now I have two problems:
    I still can't view Japanese characters.
    I can't uninstall the Java Deployment Toolkit plugin.
    The tutorials I've found on uninstalling the plugin don't work because I don't have the options they say to use. I'm using Firefox version 24.0 on Windows XP.

    In order to better assist you with your issue please provide us with a screenshot. If you need help to create a screenshot, please see [[How do I create a screenshot of my problem?]]

  • Firefox plug-in: Java Deployment Toolkit

    JRE 6u17 (probably older versions as well) install for Firefox the plug-in as in stated in subject.
    What is this plug-in good for?
    What functionality will the user miss if he/she decides to deactivate/uninstall the java deployment toolkit?

    Contrary to what BIJ001 suggests, the Java Deployment Toolkit Plugin is installed in Java SE 6 Update 10 and above.
    More info for the Java Deployment Toolkit Plugin can be found at:
    Ever since Java 6 Update 10, an NPAPI plugin and an ActiveX control (npdeploytk.dll and deploytk.dll, respectively) have both been installed by default with the JRE.
    You should be able to find them under one or more of these folders (there are other locations you may find them on your drive):
    C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin (both)
    C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\new_plugin (npdeploytk.dll only)
    C:\WINDOWS\system32 (deploytk.dll only)
    The this new functionality is the focus of attention for 2 recent vulnerabilities:

  • I "allowed" Java Deployment Toolkit, it made me upgrade java, and now there are ads everywhere

    I was doing homework on masteringgenetics and there was this box in the top left hand corner that said to allow java deployment toolkit because some of the content on the website needed it so I clicked "always allow". This then took me to java's website to update java and I was gullible so I did. Now there are random ads on most websites I go to and if I stay on there it takes me to some random website. I've tried disabling all plugins, uninstalling java, uninstalling then reinstalling firefox, but it still happened. It doesn't happen when I use google chrome so I think it's a firefox thing (actually now it's happening on chrome too).

    Oracle may be bundling other software with a Java update, so always be careful when installing or updating programs like Java and Flash and look carefully for any check boxes to installs such unwanted extras.
    You can check in "Windows Control Panel > Programs" for recently installed programs (sort by installed time) to see if any suspicious software shows up.

  • The plugin (Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.670.1 disables me from utilising Java

    Apparently, there are two Java plugins which one is as stated in my questions and the other is Java(TM) Playform SE 7 U67 which has no problems with its status set as 'Ask to activate'. The problem with the Java Deployment plugin is that i cant set it to 'Always Activate' due to reasons of being vulnerable.
    This has not happened to me before until the recent Java 67 update. I really hope I could get a reply with the solution as this has greatly hindered my web-surfing on Firefox.

    The Java DT plugin is not related to the general Java functionality with regards to running Java content in the browser. It's meant for web developers and network admins. You can delete it without negative effects to Java functionality. Instructions on how to remove it are here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2877359

  • Why is Java Deployment Toolkit (click-to-play) blocked, also the referenced bug is closed and there are no security issues known in Version 7 U51?

    I think it is important to block unsecure addons. But if you do so there should be an open bug assigened. The referenced bug for this add-on is allready resolved so I do not know why this plugin is disabled. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=636633
    I have the problem that I want to use Secure_Auth that is using the Java Deployment Kit in such a nasty way (via javascript) that firefox doesn't see that the deployment kit should be started. Therefore I will not be asked to allow this plugin always for this web site. Since there is no documentation available how to do this configuration in a config file I am stuck at the moment.
    I'm a liitle bit suprised that blocking all versions (even secure versions) is a way to get a good user experience.

    ''MG_DAU wrote:''
    The referenced bug for this add-on is allready resolved so I do not know why this plugin is disabled. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=636633
    That's a bug report in the Blocklisting component, meaning it's a request to add an add-on to the blocklist. The fact that it's marked as fixed means the add-on has been added to the blocklist.
    * https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/blocked/p428
    * [[Add-ons that cause stability or security issues are put on a blocklist]]
    Given that there's no way to disable Click-to-Play for this plug-in (the only options are Ask to Activate or Never Activate), if Firefox doesn't trigger a Click-to-Play prompt, I see no way to use it apart from disabling the entire blocklist. This carries a considerable security risk, as no plug-ins will be blocked or set to Click-to-Play, including known malware. If you're sure you want to go through with it, set ''extensions.blocklist.enabled'' to '''false''' in [http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config about:config].

  • Difference between Java Deployment Toolkit Plug-in and deployJava.js

    I was reading this article:
    and I get confused about the purpose and use of the DT Plug-in and the deployJava.js.
    I always believe that the Deployment Toolkit is the set of functions of the deployJava.js file (like this link says: http://blogs.oracle.com/thejavatutorials/entry/deployment_toolkit_101) but according to the article there are two parts of the Deployment Toolkit: the Plug-in and the interface for the developer.
    I'm asking about all of this because the deployJava.js fails to detect the appropriate version of Java in some of the machines of our users and I was wondering if the DT Plug-in could help us improve the detection, but I don't know how exactly it detects the Java version and when it does it or how can I use it to solve detection problems?
    Most of this doubts are driven by the question in the article:
    "Does deployJava.js work if the Java DT Toolkit plug-in is disabled? Yes, deployJava.js contains some pure JavaScript functions, which will continue to work even if the Java DT Toolkit plug-in is disabled."
    So... why do I need the deployJava.js if the DT Plug-in exists or vice versa?
    Any help on this matter would be very appreciated.
    Thank you very much.

    Deployment toolkit is combination of native library and javascript helpers. javascript is the only official public API to native library.
    JRE is installed with DT native library that is left on the system if JRE is uninstalled.
    As of now DT native library is only available on Windows.
    Javascript helper functions use native library if it is available but many actions can be performed (with degraded accuracy, etc.) even if native library is not present.
    Note that there is new Javascript APIs for DT as alternative to deployJava.js. it is called [dtjava.js|http://download.oracle.com/javafx/2.0/deployment/deployment_toolkit.htm#BABJHEJA] and is primary API for JavaFX applications.
    However, it also supports pure Java apps and likely will be main JS API for DT going forward (some more testing and bug fixing may be needed).
    Hope this helps to clarify the relationship.

  • Java deployment toolkit

    My Java (TM) Platform SE 6 U23 6.0230.5 is disabled because it's known to cause security problems. Should I also disable Java Deployment Toolkit Both are listed in the plug in section. Also Java Quickstarter 1.o is disabled in the extension section. Should it be?

    I would update the JRE and JDT to the latest versions, which are 6 update 31. Or you can update to the version 7 branch, which is update 3. That will enable them for you and keep you safe from security issues. [http://www.java.com www.java.com] is where you can get them.

    How long are My Photo Stream photos stored in iCloud?
    The photos you upload to My Photo Stream are stored in iCloud for 30 days to give your devices plenty of time to connect and download them.
    How many photos are stored in My Photo Stream on my devices and computers?
    iCloud pushes all your photos to the My Photo Stream album on your devices and computers, and manages them efficiently, so you don’t run out of storage space.
    Your iOS devices keep a rolling collection of your last 1000 photos in the My Photo Stream album. From there, you can browse your recent photos or move the ones you like to your Camera Roll or another album to keep them on your device forever.
    Because your Mac and PC have more storage than your iOS devices, you can choose to have all of your My Photo Stream photos automatically downloaded. In iPhoto or Aperture preferences on your Mac, select Photos (or Photo Stream) > My Photo Stream > Automatic Import. All of your photo stream photos will be imported into your Events, Projects, Photos, Faces, and Places folders in iPhoto or Aperture. On your PC with My Photo Stream enabled in the Control Panel, all of your photos will be imported into C:\\Users\<user name>\Pictures\iCloud Photos\My Photo Stream. For iCloud Control Panel 2.0 to 2.1.2 users, the path isC:\\Users\<user name>\Pictures\Photo Stream\My Photo Stream .

    How many photos and videos can be stored in a shared stream?
    A shared stream can hold a maximum of 5000 photos and videos combined. When you reach your limit, you must delete some photos or videos before adding new ones.
    How long are iCloud Photo Sharing photos and videos stored in iCloud?
    The photos and videos you share (and the comments or Likes associated with those photos) remain in iCloud until you or the contributor delete them manually, or until you delete the shared stream completely.
