Firefox 4 was general released last week on all platforms including Mac OS, but several FF4 issues have been reported since. Some of them are fatal for Java applets (and consequently for 3DXplorer users on Mac). See this or this.
Mozilla will soon be releasing a corrective version.
In the meantime, we discourage Mac users to upgrade to FF4.
In case you have already upgraded to FF4, uninstall Firefox and reinstall an older version (3.6.17) from below:

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has signaled that once the $7.4 billion acquisition of Sun Microsystems is completed, he’ll push aggressively for broader use of Java software — by challenging Google and Microsoft, among others, in developing programs for netbooks, mobile devices and office productivity.
Ellison stated, “I think you’ll see lots and lots of Java devices, some coming from our friends at Google, but I don’t see why some of the devices shouldn’t come from Sun-Oracle,” he said. “There will be computers fundamentally based on Java and JavaFX, devices based on Java and JavaFX, not only from Google but also from Sun.” Ellison even mentioned he wants to use Sun’s JavaFX Web development tools to beef up OpenOffice, a set of programs developed to rival Microsoft’s Office franchise.
3DXplorer, being Java-based and currently the only immersive and interactive 3D Online development platform which is browser-based and plug-in-less, will have significantly more development applications and an even broader market reach. As a true enterprise software company, Oracle and its acquisition, is a giant step forward for Java. 3DXplorer developers and users will be in an ideal position to benefit greatly from this push for broader Java use!
