Since the 10.6.7 update, which included the recent Java RE update (1.6.0_24), I am seeing a massive slowdown for SOME java apps - the ones running out of Chrome (10.0) and Firefox (4.0).

Specifically, ADP's Enterprise Etime (a popular online time sheet system in use by a lot of Fortune-500 enterprises, including my employer) has slowed to a crawl: screen repainting literally runs at 1/100th the speed I am used to: 10 secs to repaint a screen that normally takes 0.1secs to repaint when scrolling!

Running Etime from Safari 5.04 works almost as fast as the previous Java version in FF/Chrome, but I don't think that's a primary supported browser by ADP (it works though).

Strangely, native (not-in-browser) Java apps like DVArchive (dvarchive.org) seem to work just fine.

What broke Java in relation to Chrome+FF4 ?

How can I roll back Java 1.6.0_24 to the last version under OSX to test if this is indeed the issue?

Re-install of the standalone Java update (JavaForMacOSX10.6Update4.dmg) has shown no effect.
