Followed the instructions in the article and all commands were executed ok, but still getting the "Missing plug-in" on all webbrowsers when attempting to access a Java Applet.


I got this after installing the Mac OS X update that removed the java preferences tool.


I then proceeded to download the latest JRE 1.7 from the oracle website (as instructed by the "Missing plug-in" popup), but still, all webbrowsers keep on showing the "Missing plug-in" message.


I expect this in Chrome (as it is a 32bit browser), but it should work in Firefox / Safari.


I don't mind being on either JRE 1.7 or JRE 1.6, I just want to be able to view an applet in my browser.


I currently have the following folders in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins :


disabled -> //System/Library/Java/Support/CoreDeploy.bundle/Contents/JavaAppletPlugin.plugi n

JavaAppletPlugin.plugin (contains the jre 1.7 I downloaded from Oracle)

JavaAppletPlugin6.plugin -> /System/Library/Java/Support/CoreDeploy.bundle/Contents/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin (Contains the original Apple-provided Java SE 6 plug-in I guess)


I have no idea how the default java applet plugin is selected, or how I can activate it.

I can launch the Java Control Panel from the JavaAppletPlugin.plugin and see that "Enable java content in the browser" is enabled.


The only thing I want is to ability to use applets in any browser.


Any other things I can try ?
