This article explains how to disable the Java plugin in Firefox so that Java applets no longer run.

By default, Firefox allows Java applets to launch automatically. However, you may decide that you do not want Java applets to run. To disable Java applets in Firefox:

On the menu bar, click on the Tools menu, and then click Add-ons. The Add-ons Manager tab will open.

In the Add-ons Manager tab, select the Plugins panel.

Click on the Java Plug-in 2 for NPAPI Browsers (Mac OS 10.6) or Java Applet Plug-in (Mac OS 10.7 and above) to select it.

Click on the Disable button (if the button says Enable, Java is already disabled).

Java applets will no longer be permitted to launch in Firefox."
Just open the browser and go to the top left "Firefox" tab > Add-ons in drop down menu > Beside "Java(TM) Platform" click disable. That's all there is too it.

It would be even better to go into the Java Console and disable it under the security tab, so that you don't have to worry about it if you, or anyone else, uses a different browser.
