Hi,

I am having Firefox 1.5. I have already installed JRE 5 before installing the Firefox. Now my Firefox dosen't detect the
JRE installed already. I can't uninstall and reinstall JRE since I don't have admin rights [My sysadmin installed the previous versions and there is no way he will do that again]. So is there some config files where I can change the settings to point to the existing JRE location ?

Thanks
Joe

Try this:

Go to "Tools -> Options"

Click on the "Content" Icon (It has a globe as the symbol)

Make sure the tick boxes "Enable Java" and "Enable Javascript" are checked.

Hope that helps,

Iain.

You may also need to then restart the browser, but you probably aready have by now.  Also take a look at this KB on Java.
