Browser Support in New JavaTM Plug-in

Applet Developer's Guide > Browser Support in New Java Plug-in

The new Java Plug-in introduced in Java SE 6 update 10 release is designed to work in the following browsers:

Note that the new Java Plug-in does not work in Firefox 2. On the Windows platform, when the new Java Plug-in is enabled via the Java Control Panel, launching Firefox 2 will use the classic Java Plug-in and launching Firefox 3 will use the new Java Plug-in. Sun Microsystems and the Mozilla Foundation have been working closely in order to support the new Java Plug-In in Firefox 3. Both organizations have mutually decided not to back-port the required changes — which are significant — to Firefox 2, as it is expected that most Firefox users will upgrade to Firefox 3 a short time after its final version has been released.
