Thanks Dominic. Well, as long as it's working in Firefox, I'm not going to fool with it by removing Java 7 and reverting to Java 6. I work from home using a VDI, and my work interface isn't supporting Java 6 due to "security issues", so I'm kind of stuck. However, I'll just abandon Safari until the Java 7 issue is resolved---I had Apple Support on the phone for 90 minutes last night, and they couldn't figure out why Java 7 wasn't working, either, but from the posts you linked to it appears to be an issue with any computers older than 2012.

I am Mac Pro, OSX 10.8.2, Safari 6.0.2, with Java 7 Build 10
I work on a site the required use of Java, it stopped working / blocked use of Java 6 and said I must upgrade Java. I upgraded to Java 7.
Java still does not work in Safari, must us Firefox every day now for situations where I need Java...
After many years using Safari as default I am now considering migrating over to Firefox...

The newly discovered zero-day flaw in Java 7 is so serious that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned users to disable or uninstall it, and Apple has disabled the Java 7 plugin on Macs through its OS X anti-malware system, in order to protect users from a potentially serious security issue.
