I am trying to get Java to run on my (all updates installed) OSX 10.8.3 and can't get it to work.


I downloaded Java from http://www.java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp?locale=en


I installed it, all browsers (firefox and safari not running)


I restarted the entire computer.


There is the JavaAppletPlugin.plugin in Library/Internet Plug-Ins


I checked that Java is enabled in Safari-preferences-Security-Enable Java Script

I checked that Java is enabled in firefox under preferences-Content-Enable JavaScript


I checked that there is NO Java plugin in Firefox-Tools-Add-ons-Plugins. I don't know if this is important.


If I go to http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

with Firefox it tells me that no Java is installed.

with Safari it says "inactive plugin".


I followed all trouble shooting FAQ proposals, including de- and reinstall.


I still can't get Java to run.


Does anyone else have this Problem or can someone point me into the right direction on what to do?
