My point is that Mathematica 9 wants to install Java 6 (since it cannot run with Java 7?). However, the latest Firefox 24 reports the Java 6 to have a vulnerability issue and wants to upgrade it to Java 7 (as per the screen-shot below). I run Mathematica on OS X. Can someone from Wolfram please confirm if Mathematica indeed cannot be run with Java 7 installed, and will it be modified to run with Java 7 ?
