I have installed successfully the newest JDK Java version 8u131 for my 32bit Win 7 system.
Now I want to activate the Java Plugin/AddOn in my Firefox v53.0.2
When I go to the appropriate menu in Firefox then there is no Java Plugin/AddOn entry.
So I cannot activate it.
Java itself is running fine when I use it for Java programs outside of my browser
How can I install now AFTERWARDS the Java Plugin/Addon in my browser?
or is it only possible at installation time of Java?
Is for the Java Plugin/Addon a JRE installation sufficient or is a full JDK installation required?
Assume I have various Java installations on my computer (v7 and v8):
How can I tell the browser to use the v7 Plugin/Addon rather than the v8 Plugin/Addon?
beginning with version 52, Firefox does not support plugins any more (except for Flash). Read more about it here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/npapi-plugins?as=u&utm_source=inproduct
If you require the Java plugin, you can download the ESR (extended support release) of Firefox 52. This will give you the ability to run your plugins until early 2018.
