I have a problem with inactive plug-in in any browser I use. I am trying to connect using Juniper network connect, which was working absolutely fine till yesterday (01/31/2013). Suddenly I started getting "Inactive plug-in" error on any browser I use. I tried searching couple of solutions, none of which works.

Here is my system config:

1. Mac OS X 10.6.8

2. Java version (from terminal)

          java version "1.6.0_37"

          Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-10M3909)

          Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.12-b01-434, mixed mode)

3. Safari: Version 5.1.7 (6534.57.2)


I did try to check Java preferences, tried moving 32 bit above 64 bit JAVA SE 6, also tried enabling applet plug-in and web start applications checkbox (toggled between enable and disable) but nothing seem to work. Also, I did restart the web browsers after doing above.


The message for "inactive plug-in" is a  hyperlink, which tries to check for any software update, but finds nothing to be updated.

Can you please please please help me with this, coz its stalling all of my work.

I really appreciate any help with this.


Thank you!
