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...

you won't have more luck with firefox - this is a general problem with java.
At the current time I'm left without any java in a browser on my mac even for the critical apps I MUST use.
I really dislike that paternalism instead of just showing me a warning messages!

I just downloaded Java7u11 from Oracle. Should fix it.
Just confirmed: not surprisingly 7u11 is allowed to run. Hopefully it doesn't need to be blacklisted anytime soon.

Thank you very much, XRXDriver.
This solved my problem, too!

A new version of Java is now available 1.7.11.
I have just installed it and java works fine now with safari.

Just installed Java 7 update 11 and all seems to be working well in Safari now.
Happy to be back to normal!

I am an adult, quite capable to making decisions for myself and accepting the risks and consequences associated with those decisions. That includes those risks associated with not spending time updating software when I'm trying to log into a Juniper VPN to send an urgent email. I paid you almost £2000 for a laptop, not a nanny.
Thank you, that is all.

Yup, last week I paid $2100 to have a top of the line laptop, Macbook Pro Retina, but it will not connect to my VPN due to the java block. I called Apple and they told me they do have a fix by the advanced team who can walk me through it but I have to pay $99 since it does not come with that support option out of the box! ***?! So Apple charges the highest out of all companies for a "Top of the line" laptop, blocks Java, tells its customers it can fix the problem but it will be $99 additional dollars after I literally just spent $2100 a week prior. Unbelieveable. Apple will continue this profit/customer service slide without Steve Jobs....just as it did when he first left. I'm kind of beside myself right now...

I had the same problem, using Safari. However, thus far I've been able to log in to my work VPN using Firefox. Give it a try.

don't see the problem - just install the latest version of java (7.13) - it's available.

By the way - have a look a this post http://derflounder.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/oracle-java-7-plug-in-blocked-by-saf ari/
It's a nice walk around. I used it a few weeks ago when safari blocked java 7.10 and we had to wait during a few days until java 7.11 was released.

Java has a tool that you can confirm it is installed correctly... you may be missing a plug-in. http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp
