  1. Just now when my Avast pop up notified me of its update, it also said to update java asap. I clicked on it & it took me here http://mashable.com/2013/01/13/java-exploit/
    My java has been recently updated as of today & my plug ins are disabled.Anything I need to know or do?

    You tried reboot & reinstall? For some reason, while the install was successful, Java plugin was still disabled in FF. I reboot and reinstall. Now, it's working.

    The only java thing in FF I have is this

    After reboot, the above is the only thing java showing in FF.
    Same is disabled in SeaMonkey

    Forgot to mention I've also uninstalled older version of JAVA couple weeks ago.

    I saw an article from Kim Komando about doing such so I too did that.
