Thread: IcedTea Web Start cannot click run

  1. #1

    Default IcedTea Web Start cannot click run

    I am trying to use firefox 10.x and 9.1 on OpenSuse 12.2 64 bit using gnome shell and when the Warning Security box pops up I cannot click on run, cancel or even x out of the window. I must kill the pid. I am trying to connect to launch the Dell Virtual Console from a Dell DRAC. This worked last week but some update must of caused the problem. After seeing others have issue with java and the latest firefox I try downgrading but that did not work. This also was an issue for me some time ago when I was on opensuse 11.4 but went away after upgrading to 12.1 worked for a while and is now broken again.

    Versions of Firefox I have tried are 9.01-2.15.1 / 10.0.1-2.19.1 / 10.0-2.17.3
    IcedTea-web version: 1.1.3-1.2
    java-1_6_0-openjdk: 1.6.0.0_b22.1.10.4-1.2
    kernel: 3.1.9-1.4-desktop



    Any help would be appreciated.

    Also I have seen this as a bug on Ubuntu as well. see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...eb/+bug/888003

    i'm unaware of a Firefox version 9.1 or an openSUSE 12.2 (are you saying
    you are running the pre-beta, milestone release of the _next_ version of
    openSUSE, or ???)

    but i can say that a person running 12.1 lost use of java (IcedTea) when
    they 'upgraded' from Firefox 9 to 10, and successfully regained java
    capability by falling back to FF9--now, i do not know if it will work
    when running 12.2 to fallback to 9.1, but have a look here:

    sorry those are typos I am running opensuse 12.1 and firefox 9.0.1. I am currently on 9.0.1 because I downgraded to see if that fixed the issue because of the Firefox 10 IcedTea crash thread.

    However I don't think this is the same issue as nothing crashes, I just cannot click on the security warning window for the java applet. The security warning window becomes un-clickable and the java applet will not continue to load as it is waiting for a response on accepting the self signed certficate.

    Thanks

    this may be a waste of time: you might consider using YaST to uninstall
    IceTea and then go here to see how to install SUN Java on 12.1
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Installing_Java

    note: i have not tried that (not running 12.1) so can't vouch for its
    usefulness..

    Thanks DenverD I had not realized that java now had a 64 bit linux webstart client. Installed it and all is working.

    Thanks again.
