Check current FOS version release notes, in it you will find the supported java version. On the other hand, you can upgrade the switch fos via CLI: all you need is a telnet/ssh connection and a ftp server from which downloading the fos.

If you are using FireFox, go to the 'add-ons' area and look under plugins. Java is probably set to 'never activate.' Change this to 'ask to activate' or 'always activate.' This fixed the problem for me.
