As didier said, it's "javascript", not "java". A confusion which
is understandable in view of the similar names -- the similarity
is a marketing stunt by Netscape mid-90s for which we're still
paying through the nose :-(

By the way, you won't see anything javascript in your about:config,
you'll have to go to about:preferences and suffer a lecture by
your browser that you -- horrors! -- might be about breaking
something or that your cat might enter some Schrödinger state or
what not. Courtesy of the ever more rampant  infantilization of
browser user interfaces (or of software user interfaces in general).

The Wikipedia page on Javascript is recommended reading.
