Thread: Java not working in firefox on 12.1

  1. #1

    Default Java not working in firefox on 12.1

    I have the default setup for 12.1 which uses the OpenJDK JRE and Icedtea plugin. If I go into aboutlugins I can see that firefox has detected "IcedTea-Web Plugin (using IcedTea-Web 1.1.3 (suse-1.2-x86_64))" and all looks in order.

    However when I try to go to any website with java applets it doesn't work - the applets never load or run.

    Just done some more testing, Java works fine as a different user on the same machine. This user had a blank home dir, so there's something in my firefox profile that's breaking java.

    Works well for me on 12.1 with openJDK and tells me
    Your Java version: Version 6 Update 22

    Which is correct.

    Rename the profile and start firefox again to be sure.

    Yep the profile was corrupt. I created a new profile, copied my bookmarks into it and re-installed my extensions and now all is working. The old profile's been consigned to the recycle bin

    OpenSUSE 12.1 upgaded from 11.4.

    How do I test whether Java is working on my computer? - "Something is wrong. Java is not working"
    Java Tester - What Version of Java Are You Running? - "Browser has Java disabled"

    Newly created users have same problem.

    Often the browser plugin isn't installed by default with OpenJDK. See here for a solution: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...er-plugin.html
