It isn't looking like I'm going to re-install soon.

So you can install it for use outside of your browser, just disable it in the browser[s] then?

Ok, I guess if you had to choose, Firefox would be safer with Click to Play. However, a lot of people will just click it without considering the ramifications. Plus, is it possible that there is a security hole that bypasses that? I'm still not going to risk it.

Also, I'm going to give the head of Java security a pass. He was hired by Oracle in August. We'll give him a few months to correct 7+ years of issues.

In that case, Firefox's click to run might help for someone that knows when to allow it to run or not. Problem is some will just click and enable.
