Nothing like being left behind because I don't have the money to go out and buy a new computer every 3 years. Thanks Apple for making my bleak finances more obvious. I guess my dual 2, PPC G5 will slowly be faded out along with music tapes, common sense and hope for universal health care. Yippee!

Just in case someone out there will be doing a MANUAL update of Apple Java for MacOS X 10.5...this unfortunately is a SEMI-incremental update process, so prior to updating to the most recent Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 10, as properly indicated above, one would first need to DL and install the following: Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 5 [Released on 09.03.2009] http://web.archive.org/web/20100718113953/http://support.apple.com/kb/DL924? http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL924/en_US/JavaForMacOSX10.5Update5.dmg [NOTE: "WayBackMachine" listing mirror of the info page for Update 5 is provided above as the "official" link is DOWN, but the standalone Apple update DL link below it DOES work.] Hope that helps! ;) -Alan

I have Firefox 5.0 installed. This update removed the Java plugin from this browser. How do I re-install the Java plugin? I am currently unable to run any Java applets using Firefox 5.0.

Well, so far I've been able to develop on my Dual 2 G5 with Springsource Tools Suite version 2.6.2 , being the latest without major problems, except some odd behavior in nightly versions of STS. This includes the different Spring frameworks including Spring Roo 1.1.4, Tomcat 6. A bit bewildering is that after I installed this update and run java -version in the terminal I still get build 1.5.0_28-b04-382-9M3326, which is the same I unsurprisingly got with the 10.5_java_base_9m3233 of september 2010. Does this mean Apple just repackaged the betas as a release, I wonder...

Attempted to install this on my MacBook Pro Intel core 2 duo w/OS 10.5.8 but it doesn't then show up on my list of Software Updates, so I'm assuming that update 9 did not, in fact, install successfully. Very puzzling.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to turn for this, but I'm starting to give up...! Earlier today, I updated iTunes to 10.0.1 and Java 10.5 update 8 on my MacBook. Neither required a restart, but since my iTunes had been behaving slightly strange I restarted anyway. Since then it hasn't started yet. It loads the background picture and the program icons on the bottom of the screen, and when I left it for about an hour, I got the top as well, but only with the 'Finder" written and a couple of the icons on the top right, however not the clock. The mouse is there and can be moved around, but it is just the spinningy colourful icon, and obviously I can't open any programs. As you could guess, I haven't done a backup for about six months and feel even more stupid over this... Is there anything I can do to help my computer back to life? Thanks so much for anyone trying to help me!

Ever since updating to this Java version, Firefox no longer displays Ebay listings. Safari still works. I can't say it's this Java version, Firefox or Ebay, but as of this update I can't use Firefox for Ebay at all.

Unless you have some third party software running with Java in FIrefox, this is completely unrelated. Did you unload all add-ons?

I have had the same problem. When I reinstalled the OS it worked normally. At that time I did not know the JAVA update was the culprit -- but when I just updated it again the problem re-occurred. The system now will not start up normally (I have to hold the power button down, wait for the long beep tone, etc.) I am hoping they can patch it, because I don't want to reinstall the apps I had to reinstall after the OS reinstall... HOWEVER -- doing a "repair" type install on the OS did work. ***************************************************** This is from the apple developer site: http://www.apple.com/java/faq/#remove url Q: Can I remove a Java update after I've installed it? A: Java on Mac OS X is updated incrementally through numerous releases. Therefore, the only way to revert to an earlier Java installation is to reinstall the operating system. The same applies for any other Java-related Software Updates or Developer Previews. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that Developer Previews of Java on Mac OS X be installed on non-critical systems.
