Hi,  I downloaded the latest version of Java, and it does not work in Safari, though it works fine in Firefox.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I am running OS 10.8.2 on a 2011 iMac.  I tried Apple Support, and they can't figure out the problem, either.  I went through all of the steps suggested on the Java help page (checked preferences to ensure Java/JavaScript were checked, tried deleting Java cache, went to Terminal to delete and reinstall Java 6, then deleted Java 6 and reinstalled Java 7, etc.).


When I use the Java test screen to see if Java 7 is working, I get the message "Blocked Plug-In".  I even reinstalled Flash to see if that was the problem.


Any suggestions would be very welcome.
