    How to install (afterwards) Java Plugin in Firefox browser?

    pstein-JavaNet

      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.

       

      Why?

       

      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?

       

      Thank you
