Saturday, 12 January 2013

This document includes instructions for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer.

In Mozilla Firefox

Open a new Firefox window or tab and click on the orange Firefox button in the top left corner.

Click the “Add-ons” button.

Next, click on the “Plugins” button on the left side of the page. Find the plugins that say Java, and click on the disable buttons to the right of them.

When the plugins are disabled, they will be grayed out. If you'd like to re-enable Java, click the Enable button to the right of the plugins.


In Google Chrome

Open a new tab or window in Chrome, and type “chrome://plugins” into the location bar at the top of the browser.

Find the plugin that says Java, and click the Disable button underneath it.

The section that says Java should now be grayed out. If you'd like to re-enable Java, click the enable button.


In Internet Explorer

Open a new tab or window in Internet Explorer and click the settings button (shaped like a gear) in the top right corner.

Select “Manage add-ons” from the drop-down menu that comes up.

A new window will pop up. In that window, find the add-on that has “Java” in it and click on it. To disable it, click the “Disable” button on the bottom right.

Make sure any buttons under “Related add-ons that will also be disabled:” are checked, and then and click the disable button.

If you'd like to re-enable Java, click the “Enable” button at the bottom right.
