Why is Java Blocked on My Mac?


Why is Java blocked on my Mac? As annoying
as this software is, it is darn near essential to running anything other than a simple text
based webpage. Java won’t work on a Mac if you have Java
7 and a Chrome browser. It may not work unless you switch to a 64-bit version of Firefox
or Safari. I’m not using Chrome. I rely on Firefox
because it has better security. The IT security of Firefox is comparable to
Chrome. The makers of Firefox have not been handing
all our emails and personal information to the NSA. The Java problem might be the browser settings
or with Java itself. How can I tell the difference short of hacking
IE and installing it on my Mac? Go to javatester.org and run the test in your
browser session. If the problem is in two different browsers, you know the issue is
your Java. Can I update Java, if Java itself is having
problems? Check the browser permissions and set it so
that Java plug-ins have permission to run. When you go to the Java website, select to
run Java plug-ins or Java Applets always on that site. I’d hate to have to make sure my Java settings
are right to update Java. It might blow up. You were complaining about page long error
messages already. What else could go wrong? The browser could crash whenever Java tries
to run. Go into the browser and alter the Java plug-in
settings so that they have permission to run. If that does not work, you might need to update
the Java plug-ins themselves. Update Java, update Java plug-ins, you’ve
recommended everything but updating the browser and the operating system. Browsers do have to update to keep up with
Java, but Java evolves more quickly because of the security holes it introduces. But updating
the browser is a possibility. What is my last hope? The Apple Genius bar.
