How to make Java work with Firefox?

dthomas

I haven’t used Firefox in a while, but there are a few website that I regularly visit that don’t work well with Chrome, so I dusted off Firefox. I updated Java, which had not been updated in a long time, and now I get a message that I need a plug in for Java, but it doesn’t tell me WHAT plug-in. How can I get it to work?
