I've been looking for MacOS 10.5 browsers that will run Java 1.6 applets. Java 1.6 requires a 64-bit browser; almost all the MacOS 10.5 browsers are 32-bit. The only 64-bit browser I've found that will work on MacOS 10.5 is iCab 4.8. Does anyone know of any others?
Thanks, Ernest. I downloaded Firefox 11.0, but when I go to the Java test site at http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp with Firefox 11, it still runs only Java 1.5. When I go to that same site in iCab 4.8, it says I am running Java 1.6. Is there an option in Firefox 11 that I need to flag to get it to use 64 bits? In iCab I can switch between 32-bit and 64-bit modes by using Get Info, but that doesn't appear to be the way to do it in Firefox 11.
My Java SE 6 option is already at the top of the list in Java Preferences, and the box is checked. I restarted Firefox 11 and went to http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp, and it is still telling me that I am running Java 1.5.
Are you sure that your installation of Firefox 11 is running Java 1.6?
