    Default Java problems in firefox

    No java using sites will load properly, that means Aol, Google maps and hotmail won't work.

    Strangely I've never had this problem before and it wasn't happening this morning.

    I sifted through the error console and found a slew of "warnings" having to do with java and css properties

    Also, java applets do work on IE.

    Thanks in advance for all your help




    P.S.

    I don't want to go back to IE!

    If you have not:

    All users having problems with Firefox 2.0.0.x and Java are strongly advised to update to Java Runtime Environment 6.0 Update 4.
    And the current version of firefox is 2.0.0.12, just in case you need that...


    Here's how:

    Updating Java:
    • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u4.
    • Scroll down to where it says "The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
    • Click the "Download" button to the right.
    • In the pull down menu next to Platform select Windows
    • Check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement"
    • Click Continue
    • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save to your desktop.
    • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
    • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
    • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
    • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
    • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
    • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
    • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u4-windowsi586-p.exe to install the newest version.
