I recently update my version of Firefox, and the first time I opened it got a message to the effect that it had found an incompatable version of Java, 6.0.1 I think, so it had disabled it.
Is this a general problem, or does it sound like my machine? What version of Java can I use?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Won't reproduce, as Java version disabled, I think.
Actual Results:  
See above.

Expected Results:  
See above.

See above.

i guess this is a dupe of Bug 364390

Its not the plugin, its the Java Console as incompatible addon (because of the
max version).

You can test the java version also on to check if java is working.

Yeah, I hit this the other day testing a bug. It's indeed a dupe of bug 364390.

   Is the problem with JAVA going to be fixed any time soon?

This is not a Firefox Bug. You need to update the Java Version. Please see and the first entry in the Windows & Windows Vista section

   I just tried it and had to use restore to get my java to work.  I also checked to see if I have the latest version of java and I do.  So, it seems to be your problem.  It still says that java is not compatible with firefox.
