Is it possible to get java in Firefox?


Recommended Posts

I have both 32 and 64 bit versions of FF, but neither one support Java, and though it is not used much, some sites require it, such as the router config page. I read from java's site that firefox no longer allows the plugin's that Java used. I am wondering if anyone has a way to bypass this or am I doomed to use another browser for Java purposes?

You can use Firefox ESR.

what is the name of your router?

As Circaflex said, you can download the latest version of Firefox ESR here, which still supports plugins other than adobe flash.

Those still using Windows XP or Vista have to use Firefox ESR editions anyway since the upcoming Firefox 53 version due out later this April will drop XP/Vista support.

That would be IE11, Chrome/Edge/Vivaldi have all dropped support for it as well. If your router still requires you to use Java, it might be time to start looking for a replacement (Since Oracle are also deprecating the Java plugin)

Yeah, sounds like an old deprecated router?

Very deprecated - I have a Netgear WNDR3700v4 (which was replaced with the V5) and it doesn't require Java  and never has - in fact, the last router I owned that did was from (no fainting) Microsoft and was WIRED (no wireless at all) - the MN-100 - even the Linksys WRT54G (which I still own - it's on a shelf) lets you kick Java to the curb.  The only reason I have Java at all is due to Android development - nothing else uses Java.  I can hardly wait until the pr0n sites fire it finally (and most have; however, there are some holdouts in the Japanime side that haven't yet).
