We have a legacy web based application that is going to take a while to get rid of - it is frozen at Java 6 u13. We would like to have our end users connect using Firefox instead of IE. When I attempt to connect to the URL, I get an error from Firefox.
I've included the error. I have been trying to figure out how to add the Java 6 plugin but have not been able to figure it out. FF-JavaError.JPG
As per Oracle:
Older versions of the Java Deployment Toolkit (DT) and the Java Plugin have been disabled by Firefox. Some Java versions are flagged by Firefox as 'Add-ons may be causing problems'.
If Firefox thinks an add-on is unsafe and can cause a security risk, it will block it from loading. In case of a soft block Firefox will present a warning message but will allow the user to continue if they wish but with compromised security. In the case of a hard block Firefox will block installation so that the user cannot use this add-on. To resolve this, the user should update to latest version of Java.
I know you didn't want to hear this, sorry :(
