I accidentally deleted the Java applet plug in from my computer and since then the plug-in is blocked. How do I get it back? I've tried countless times to install the java version on Apple as well from the Java sight but now nothing is working what do I do?

    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.

    You installed the Oracle Java 7 plugin, which is insecure and has been blocked by Apple. To revert to the Java 6 plugin, follow these instructions:

    I did see that link but I believe I accidently removed the original java applet plugin completely and so I don't think this will work, I installed firefox so that I could use the online app I needed and it works fine on there. Then on safari I just unchecked the enable java box on safari. All other apps on safari work except for this on this one sight. Is there anyway I can reinstall the original JavaApplet plug-in?
