Peter's right -- they're two different animals. To disable Java in FF, go to about:addons. On the Plugins tab, look for something like "Java(TM) Platform SE" and click its Disable button.

Of course, there's no shortage of Javascript exploits either. :-} If you're really security-conscious, look into the QuickJS extension, which lets you enable/disable Javascript with a toolbar button so you can allow it only when you need it.

HTH!
