You can use »netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/ to at least test for UPNP access from the wan side .
Will be near the top of the results listing ,may have to hit + to get full details .
You won't need to worry about upnp if you install JAVA!!
Berkeley have their head up their ass?
Do not disagree with you Sindows ,the nice thing about Firefox is how easy it is to turn Java on and off . Since I normally run the test with only one instance of FF running , and then turn Java back off , not too worried about it.

Try doing the types of test that Netalyzr does without Java. I dare you. I double dare you.
At the end of the day, Java requires less investment of resources to get one thing to run in multiple places(browsers, OSes, etc...).
Plus, Java will only mess you up if you allow it to run on other sites. The choice is yours.
