It's not in Tools> Add-ons >plugins? Should be Java Plug-in 2 for NPAPI browsers 13.5.0. What are you seeing there? I don't think it's called the embedding plugin any longer.


Might try getting the Firefox 5 standalone application. Trash the current one and replace it. Doing this won't affect your Profile or any settings.

If it's enabled, how can it be missing?


If this doesn't work, ask here. No need to register. Make sure you put (Mac) in the title.

EDIT. Oops, may be different for 10.5.8. Was thinking recent Java update for 10.6. But try installing a new app anyway. In the past, this got me the latest Java plugin.

For the record, on Mac OS X 10.5, Apple's Java Update 10 removed support for JavaPlugin2, preventing Firefox versions 4.0 and above and other non-Apple browsers from detecting that Java is installed. Mozilla fixed the problem in Firefox 5.0.1 and above so this should no longer be a probem if you applied the latest Firefox update.
