Everytime I try to use a site to upload photos i get the error message "download java and install".  I am using OS X 10.7.5 and Java 7 update 25.  with Safari 6.0.5.  It worked last week but not this week.  have tried deleting cache and reinstalling Java 7 and quitting and restarting Safari but can't get any further than this error message.  Java is enabled within Safari.

 

Managed to upload photos on a friend's Windows machine with IE and it worked okay.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    If you use Safari there is a a pane in Safari preferences>security Plugins which allows you to select use Java.

     

    In FireFox check into the manage add-ons for enabling Java.

     

    Apple tends to disable Java as it is the path that most malware is launched.

     

    You may have to re-enable Java when you need to use it, it is a good idea to disable it when not needed for saftey reasons, tis is why the Apple default is to turn it off.

     

    I avoid it when ever possible.

     

    Thanks and wish all the best to you,

     

    Be safe
