I am prompted to download JAVA but Safari says the connection is dropped when I go to download it.
There seems to be something wrong with the Java support site for the past couple of days. I located an alternate source:
Try Java SE Runtime Environment 7 Downloads, click the "Accept License Agreement" button and then select "jre-7u40-macosx-x64.dmg" for download. That works for me at this time.
