I am wondering how one knows if they should install the new Update for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 8?  It says, "If you do not use Java applets, you should disable the Java web plug-in your web browser," which is Safari for me.


Is this an update I should install?  Enable Java is checked and has been since I installed Safari.


any suggestions?  I have been having so much trouble with my MBP the last 6 months, all I need is something else to conflict and cause more troubles.  A trip to the Genius Bar is needed.



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 500 GB HD 7200 rpm

    Just run Software Update and it will take care of anything that needs to be done.


    For your other problems, consider posting a question here that describes what issues you are having.

    The Java Update 8 does NOT disable Java in Safari.  One needs to do that manually. So are you saying I should leave it checked in Safari---Preferences---Security---Web Content?


    I think in 35 days or so this update will disable all Java anyway.
