3.  Within the Security settings, a check box for Enable Java is present.  To enable Java in Safari, check the Enable Java check box.  If the Enable Java check box is already checked, then Java is already enabled.  If you want to disable Java in Safari, uncheck the Enable Java check box.  No confirmation that you have changed the setting will display in Safari.  There is no OK or Apply button — the setting is saved automatically.

4.  For the new setting to Enable Java to take effect, you must close all of your open Safari tabs and windows.  Completely exit out of Safari, and then relaunch Safari.  Navigate to the web page where the Java content is present, and the Java content will now load in your web browser.
