I successfully upgraded my 3706A to the latest firmware version 1.53C.
Both my Mac and PC runs the latest Java 8 Update 73.
Regardless what browser I used, I could see the home and LXI pages, but I got a blank page when I clicked the links to my installed cards.
What version of Java do I have to reverse back on my laptops in order to web browse the cards in my 3706A?
It turned out that I was able to web-interface my 3706A only with Explorer and Java 8 Update 73 on PC of Windows 7. I could open all the pages and operate DMM and relays on installed cards.
The web-interface failed with Chrome on the same PC, the latest Firefox v44, and Safari 9.0.3 on Mac of the latest OS 10.11.3. I could only see the pages of Home, Admin, and LXI.

When I tried to access the cards using Chrome on PC, I got
"Need to install and enable Java Plug-in Version 6 or above.
Click to install latest Java"
I just ran the Java 8 Update 73 to control CryoCon 24C and Agilent N6700A. So the problem couldn't be the Java and Browser, but Keithley 3706A.
When I tried to access the cards using either Safari or Firefox on Mac, I got a blank without any security warning.
I can control CryoCon 24C and Agilent N6700A using Safari and Firefox on the same Mac. So the problem couldn't be the Java and Browser, but Keithley 3706A.
Conclusion: The problem I investigated is not due to the security. Keithley needs to look into its own applet source code in 3706A.
I have three 3706s and cannot access the cards because of the "Application is Blocked by Java Security".
I am running the 3706 browser from a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop with Windows 7 Pro, IE 11 and Java 8 Update 101.
I would appreciate any suggestions to overcome this obstacle.
I have a solution to Java blocking the 3706/3706A browser. It is simple, in the Java Control Panel modify the security level from Very High to High or/and add the IP address of the 3706/3706A to the Exception Site List. See enclosed WORD file.
