Firefox, eBay and Java.

Out of the blue has appeared a problem with eBay.

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium
Firefox 3.6.3

I first noticed the problem when I could not complete the quicksell process. It would not recognise clicks on the add photo link. The I noticed that I was getting a cut down version of the My eBay page.

I have also noticed that my iGoogle page is not rendering prop...

Hang on a minute. It has rendered properly. Check eBay... That's OK too.

I haven't a clue what is going on but it seems that I no longer have a problem.

BTW I have lots of Java Console entries in my Add ons ending with 6.0.20. In trying to rectify the above problem I disables all but the last. It didn't make any difference. What are they for?

6.0.20 is the latest release of Java and you can safely delete all previous entries (not just in FF add-ons but from your computer)
This handy little prog will do it all for you click here

Thanks, cocteau48.

I have used JavaRa and all seems to be well. The list of old Java consoles is still in the FF addons. How do I get rid of them rather than just have them disabled? Doeas it matter apart from the fact that it offends my feelings of tidiness, :-)

I did not use JavaRa to update Java just to remove old versions. I only updated it yesterday on the instructions of the lady from eBay.
