I am trying to load an applet that requires Java 1.6. I am running MacOS 10.5.8 on an Intel machine with all updates installed. Java Preferences shows the following boxes checked:



I went to the Sun Java test site, and it told me my Java version was J2SE Runtime 5 Update 28.

This page gave instructions for changing Java versions by changing a symlink in the Java versions library.



So the OS is now telling me that the default version of Java is version 1.6.

However, even after restarting my computer, I still can't load the applet, and Sun is still telling me that I am running J2SE Runtime 5.

I see the same symptoms in both Safari 5.0.5 and Firefox 3.6.17.

Any ideas on how to convince my browsers to use Java 1.6?
