Created attachment 685326 [details]
console spew and crash stack

1. ???
2. Create a new profile (because you have Java disabled in your main profile)
3. Load a page that uses Java, such as http://www.squarefree.com/spampede/
4. Reload

Result: Crash

This is on my MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.7.5.  It is possible that I deleted some Java file years ago.

I have "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin" but I might be missing something used by the plugin (like an actual Java).

"/Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences.app" refuses to start, saying "No compatible version of Java 1.5+ is available".
Needless to say, I can't reproduce this.

But even if you messed things up at a low level, you *should* (in principle) be able to get things working again by reinstalling Apple's and Oracle's latest Java updates.

Apple's latest "updates" now actually delete their Java plugin (which they no longer maintain).  But after you've done that, clicking on a Java applet should prompt you to download Oracle's current version.  If this doesn't work with click-to-play on, turn it off and try again.

Otherwise you'll probably have to do a clean reinstall of the OS.
