Mozilla Firefox 32-bit v52 Disables Java - Note: Mozilla Firefox v53 will permanently disable Java.

KB
Firefox released version 52 March 8th, 2017 and by default it disables all NPAPI plugins (Java) except Flash. The workaround is below.  Please keep in mind, the next version of Firefox (version 53) will permanently disable Java so it is vital that sites are updated to versions that support Java Web Start or you move to HX/HTML5.
 
Solution:
  1. Open Firefox and enter the following into the address bar of a new tab: about:config
  2. Confirm the warning message
  3. Create a new Boolean option by right clicking anywhere in the list and navigating to New > Boolean
 
 
  1. Name the new Boolean option: plugin.load_flash_only
  1. Click OK
  2. Set the value to false
  1. Click OK
  2. Restart Firefox
