Safari: "Manage Website Settings…" lets you enable the Java web plug-in website-by-website
In Safari versions 5.1.9, 5.1.10, 6.0.4, and 6.0.5, you can enable the Java web plug-in on a website-by-website basis, with four settings to choose from.
When you first visit a website that requires the Java web plug-in, Safari presents a prompt similar to this one but containing the specific website:
Once you have chosen to block or allow the Java web plug-in on a website, you can manage Java settings for that website in the Security pane of Safari Preferences. To do so, follow these steps:
- Choose Safari > Preferences.
- Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Manage Website Settings…" button.
- For each website you have visited that uses the Java web plug-in, you can choose one of four settings:
- Ask Before Using: Safari presents the option to Block or Allow the Java web plug-in. If an update is available for Java, Safari directs you to download the latest version.
- Block Always: Safari presents "Blocked Plug-in" text in the place of the Java web plug-in content. Clicking "Blocked Plug-in" will bring up the option to Block or Allow the Java web plug-in for that website.
- Allow: Websites set to "Allow" can run the Java web plug-in as long as the installed version of Java has no known critical security issues. If an update is available for Java, Safari directs you to download the latest version.
- Allow Always: The Java web plug-in will run without prompts from Safari. This setting is only recommended for trusted websites that require the Java web plug-in, such as websites that are only accessible on your company's intranet.
