How to keep using Java at

If you are using Java through FireFox web browser: FireFox March 2017 update 'kills' Java plugin. Per information on "Beginning with Firefox 52 (March 2017 release), Java plugin is no longer supported on FireFox and Chrome". "Plug-in support for FireFox is limited to Adobe Flash, and drops support for NPAPI, impacting plugins for Java, Silverlight, and other similar NPAPI based plugins." You can still use Java, however, with Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is still present in all Windows versions, even Windows 10. To open Internet Explorer on Windows 10, first use their default web browser 'Edge' and after going to, select Edge's menu (three dots) followed by "Open with Internet Explorer". Also a warning: There soon will be a newer Java 9. If you want your Java plugin to keep working, DO NOT INSTALL a newer Java 9 version. You need to make sure that Java does not update itself automatically without your consent. On Windows you can do it via Control Panel->Java->Update - un-select "Check for updates automatically".
