I think he's confused about what JavaScript is...Psycho, post the HTML (and any other code) from the offending page, along with the code in any files referenced by it (i.e., with <script src="script.js">). Or, if the page is online, post the URL.

you download it so javascript can run within firfox
Umm... FireFox (and all major browsers) have native support for JavaScript, you shouldn't need to be downloading anything..!Are you trying to run an ActiveX control? A Java applet? A 3rd-party library? Err...

It's an add-on towards firefox like you download it so javascript can run within firfox,I dunno how to explain it [...]
Well, if it's an add-on, it has a name. And you say you downloaded it. So, a good starting point would be to post its name and a link to where you downloaded it from... :)

Yes, that's Java. The confusion comes from a bunch of marketing knuckleheads at Netscape way back when...Are you getting it at http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/windows.html#Java?

Java and Javascript are completely different things. Java is a Server-Side Script. Javascript just kinda reacts to the browser on events. I have no idea if I explained that correctly. I know what Javascript is, I just can't explain it correctly.

Java is a language for creating client-side applets that run in the Java Virtual Machine in the browser, for creating desktop applications that run locally in the JVM, or for creating server-side pages using Java Server Pages. Javascript is a client-side scripting language for modifying the existing web page. Java is owned by Sun Microsystems and Javascript is an implementation of a standard defined by Ecma.
