    Hi,

    When I visit https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ to update my plugins it says, 'For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version.'

    I did not know I ran Java. I cannot see it anywhere. Not in Program files or in Remove/Add in Control Panel. So should I follow the link and download the latest version of Java? Because an outdated version of Java poses serious threat, right?

    Best Wishes,
    ams963

    This is a false-positve detection by the plug-in check tool. If you know you have never installed Oracle | Java - ignore this.
    From my machine: ~ sans Java ~
    The List of add-ons Mozilla now actively blocks.
