Mozilla and Apple are on this and have disabled the Java plugin in the latest updates.

Best thing is to turn off java until this is fixed.

This has been fixed in the latest update. Version 7 update 11.
As with Adobe Reader, I suspect that the excessively frequent updates are just attempts to get you so tired of the process you forget to opt out of the add-on toolbars and search engines, and "helper' add-ins.
