I have just the opposite problem — getting Java to work reliably. I generally only want it for the Newsday and syndicated NY Times crossword puzzles, but it comes and goes on various browsers — Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari. Currently it is working sometimes on Safari, sometimes not. Is there some other Mac browser that lets Java work more consistently? You do not need it. Never mind.
