I have just moved to Windows 7 from Windows XP, but now whenever I open my Firefox browser I get a message asking about SE Runtime Environment 6 update, no matter whether I answer yes or no the message keeps appearing whenever I open the Browser and sometimes when I navigate the internet with the browser. How do I get rid of this?

Thanks

Have you installed Java runtime? If not, get it here.

Welcome to the Ranch

Don't know, but that sounds more like a problem with Firefox. You may need to register the Java runtime with Firefox; try this plugin page from the Firefox website in the first instance.

Thanks this seems to be fixed now. I downloaded and re-applied the JE Runtime v 14 to Firefox. I used a migration tool to move applications over to Windows 7. Firefox was working fine on XP problem only appeared in Windows 7. Must have lost something during the migration.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
