Enable Java for Mozilla browsers
I need to enable Java (1.6.0_20) for Mozilla browsers.
I know this can be done during install of Java or through the console (as admin) if already installed.
- I've tried editing the value of [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.6.0_20\MSI\MOZILLA] from 0 to 1. This is not enough.
- Also tried adding the value [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\1.6.0_20\MOZILLA] = 1, Also not working.
- Tried a combination of the above, without success.
I know I can solve the problem by reinstalling Java, but this is not an option atm.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I've also done a snapshot of what happens when I change this in the console, but doesn't find anything in that either
I've considered myself beaten by Oracle, and did a re-install of Java with the "MOZILLA=1" property.

I think this setting is saved in one of the preference files for the browser. Using a snapshotting tool, change this setting and see if one of the .js files on the machine changes. For the version of Firefox I have installed here (11.0) I think it's in the file C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs.js, but I think this was different for older versions.
Anyway, once you've identified the correct file, you could modify these settings through scripting.
