Safari still will not launch any Java plug-in (Example: The 'Verify Java Version' applet will not launch: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp


Deleted the Java plugin for Safari

- sudo rm -R /Library/Internet \Plug-ins\ (Any plug-in having to do with Java)

- Reinstall Java

- Reboot


Safari still will not launch any Java plug in.
- I do not know how to reinitialize the plug-in after "Apple has updated the web plug-in-blocking mechanism to disable older versions of the web plug-in: Java "



Problem does not happen in Safari on OSX 10.6.8 and 10.8.X.... Only OS 10.7.4 and 10.7.5

- OS 10.6.8 and 10.8.X are resolved by installing the Java update (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1573 and http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 ) > Safari update (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1569 and http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1640 ) > Reboot

- 10.7.X does not have an update for Safari.



How do you enable the new Java plug-in for Safari 5.1.7 on OS 10.7.4 and 10.7.5? Where is the Safari update?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

So much for Mac support. Figured it out on my own. Update Java from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572Reboot and test Java Plug-ins by http://java.com/en/download/installed.jspIf the applet wont load do the following:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5559?viewlocale=en_USMove current installed plugin to disabled folder. Then force a symbolic link from /System to create a new plugin.sudo mkdir -p /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/disabled sudo mv /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/disabledsudo ln -sf /System/Library/Java/Support/Deploy.bundle/Contents/Resources/JavaPlugin2_NPAPI .plugin /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.pluginTest Java Plug-ins again http://java.com/en/download/installed.jspShould report Version 6 Update 45. Which is what was released from Apple on 04/16. I attempted to install Version 7 Update 21 and it disables the Safari plug-in again.
