    When reading the article it stated firfox will install with the default blocking
    But you will have a choice to enable it as well…

    Thank you, averchat, I must have missed it. The old eyes aren't what they used to be. :-(
    But if I can enable/disable it myself, there shouldn't be a problem.
    Thanks again.

    I'm guessing you never will play Minecraft then. That's probably the one and only reason the majority of people want to keep java around by now. I would love if they coded that game in something more native and ditched java altogether, after all the game would run 200x better if coded (properly) in something like C++.

    Not gonna happen though. Java's the reason people can play the game on so many platforms without much work on the developers.

    They should include Flash also as its #2 behind Java in attacks. I have moved on to IE10 but still have Firefox and use QuickJava plugin that controls all of those.

    FF was my default for ages with XP, Vista and 7 = then it started going funny. BUt I was not laughing. If Mizilla cant get it right pull it = get it right = then release it.

    I default on Chrome now, so far no problems.

    IE9 was pathetic, hated it. But not done much testing on IE10 yet, maybe I dont want to?
