Safari update breaking Java in Sage?

Today none of my Mac-using students could get Jmol stuff to display in class---and when I tried to use the notebook I'd written for class, it would no longer display for me, either! We all got the error "You do not have Java applets enabled in your web browser, or your browser is blocking this applet. Check the warning message from your browser and/or enable Java applets in your web browser preferences, or install the Java Runtime Environment from"

Of course, (1) I do have Java applets enabled in Safari (yes, I double-checked) and (2) I do have the most recent JRE installed (yes, I double-checked).

Everything was working fine last week after the latest JRE update... and the only thing that has changed since then is that Safari updated to 6.0.4. I'm wondering whether the new Java handling (case-by-case) is not being triggered by Sage and that's why we're not able to get Jmol to work.

Or, am I missing something else that will get Java to work?
