I am trying to upload photos to an outside vender and it requires JAVA (which I must not have the latest version of because the site directed me to install it).  I am using Mac OS X version10.5.8. If I choose About Java Preferences it says I have Java 6 Standard Edition version 12.9.0.  Please tell me how to find the correct update.  Thanks so much for your assistance.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    The final Java update for Leopard was Update 10, 29 June 2011 - This release updates J2SE 5.0 to 1.5.0_30, and updates Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_26. J2SE 1.4.2 is no longer being updated to fix bugs or security issues and remains disabled by default in this update. Support for out-of-process Java applets on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard has been removed with this update.

    This release is only for Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later versions of Mac OS X 10.5.

    Yes, that is basically the situation regarding Java, but I am surprised a photo uploading site requires Java. Usually they require Javascript, which is something completely different. Make sure you have that turned on in Safari Preferences/Security.
