I can disable JS for MAil/News. But I can't disable Java for Mail/News

Edit/preferences/Advanced/ :
[x] Enable Java
[X] Enable Javascript for Navigator
[ ] Enable Javascript for Mail and News
Disabling JavaScript for Mail/News worksforme as Matti described. We've never
had that option for Java, though it seems like a good idea. Does clearing the
Enable Java checkbox in Edit|preferences|advanced not block Java from running in
mail messages? Mitch, can you clarify?
Disabling JS for mail/news works for me.

Do we really need to disable Java specifically for mail/news? Seems like a
reasonable thing to want.

Changing summary. Does Java even run in mail/news messages? Probably does.
Summary: Need to disable Java/JavaScript for Mail/News only → Disable Java for mail/news
Java works in a mail message.
If you disable Java in the pref (general Java usage), Java is also disabled in 
Mail...

What about an option "disable all active content in mail/news" - this would fit
newly reported (probably duplicate) bug #119674.

Is this bug fixed? See bug 147877
I think this has been fixed. John or Bindu, can you verify that we can disable
Java in mail messages?

Verified. Disable java, email yourself the above link, and read the mail. You
should not see a clock.
