I have JDK 1.6.0_43 installed. My browser (Firefox 20.0) has Java applet plug-in 14.6.1 installed and enabled (which, according to Firefox's plugin check, is up-to-date). But applets do not work.
For example, when I login and visit live timing on formula1.com, the popup window just shows me "Missing plug-in". Upon clicking "More information", it sends me to an Oracle page to download Java 7 Update 21.
I don't want to install Java 7 yet.
Is there any way to get Java applets working in Firefox, especially without updating to Java 7 JDK?
