A problem has recently been reported with Java NOT javascript in OS X.
More information can be found here:

By disbaling Java in your browser the problem is fixed. Also the
vulnerability is only activated when a page with the malicious applet is visted.
Again by moving away from the page as soon as the Java icon appears the
applet is stopped from loading. By the way I have checked it does load.
