    Are you using the same  update provided on this link?

    Cause Apple patched Java several times during the introduction of Flashback, and the latest one is on the one on their website.

    Please avoid from using ALL UPPERCASE.  Experienced Internet users know this means one is "shouting" and think it is rude, plus it is hard to read.

    What's the block?

    I think they are referring to the Java auto-run block that is instituted by the Flashback patch.

    He's probably referring to CS4, which seems to require java for some purpose (at least, I've seen some error messages on my own machine from some CS$ process about java not being installed).  I haven't looked into it yet myself, but maybe someone else has.

    Or maybe a nasty e-mail from an ISP trying to sell Norton. The Flashback auto-disable can be changed in Java Preferences.

    There are a couple of Java disablings going on. With Lion:

    This update also configures the Java web plug-in to disable the automatic execution of Java applets. Users may re-enable automatic execution of Java applets using the Java Preferences application. If the Java web plug-in detects that no applets have been run for an extended period of time it will again disable Java applets.

    But that doesn't happen with the Snow Leopard Java Update.

     

    It was reported yesterday that the Flashback Removal Tool for Leopard disables Java in Safari. I suspect the same thing is true with Safari 5.1.7.
