Just downloaded latest version for the first time it has installed into IE ok but when i go to control panel to to the java icon choose browsers and tick mozilla amessage comes up saying unable to change browser settings check its properly installed or you have sufficent permission to change system settings.I am using win98se.
Start your Firefox browser then go to Tools > Options > Web Features and place tick in box to "Allow web sites to install software" then go back to Control Panel > Java Plug ins and activate Java for Mozilla browser. This should let it install. Once finished remember to take tick back out of the box to allow websites to install software.
When I originally installed Firefox I had what I thought were the latest Java installations but, on visiting one particular website, Firefox brought up a panel to enable Java to be downloaded if approved.
It may have installed in Firefox. Have you used the test on Sun Java website to check? click here If the dancing logo is animated then Java is properly installed. Ignore the message that your version is not up to date.
Yes all is well, but what I am saying is that "Mozilla" and Firefox are two different browsers. I think that if you tick Mozilla, it shows that it cannot be found. However if you enable java in Firefox, then there is no problem. I am not sure how to make this clearer, but I have a cleaning program "Super Cleaner" and it lists Firefox. IE Mozilla,Netscape7, Netscape 6, AOL, Opera and Netscape 4. All these are different programs.
