    Considering the many suggestions to disable Java in your browser for safety reasons amongst the rush of malware recently, can someone tell me how to do that in Firefox. Camino and Safari have a checkbox for Java in the preferences, but Firefox only has one for JavaScript, which is supposed to be something else entirely.

    I believe removing JavaEmbeddingPlugin.bundle from Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugins/ takes care of that
