Why did the latest OS X update break Java and how do I fix it?

Pretty self explanatory, but - I recently updated me MacBook to 10.5.7. Now, numerous websites employing Java interfaces don't work at all, or only work partially. For instance, clicking various buttons (e.g. "Login" - pretty crucial) does nothing on some of these, like Westlaw which I use for both school and work (I'm a law student). On others, Java and now that I think of it, Flash-based entities just never load - what I'm talking about here is stuff like games on armorgames.com or whatever.
Is this just me or are other people running into this? Any way to fix it? It happens in Firefox and Safari but seems worse in Safari.
