Re: All versions of the Java plugin are blocked

said by kickass69:

Is Firefox phoning home to Mozilla all the time like Chrome does with Google? From that explanation that's not definitely answered. I mean how else are they able to control the Click to Play feature and determine what's 'bad' for us to run.

Yesterday, I visited a site that uses java, with firefox 18.

Nothing was blocked - java worked as normal.

That is probably because when I install firefox, I uncheck the "install maintenance service" option.

I think the answer is that, by default, firefox phones home. But you can prevent that by unchecking the "maintenance service" when installing.
