I just loaded on my work PC under Firefox. Here's the first thing that pops up that I was talking about that you have to accept. The second picture is chat running. Does take just a few seconds to load up. Do these look familiar?



Nope didn't get anything like that.. it's just a grey box with at "float" button at the bottom middle. Never asked me to approve anything. I've tried it on both my desktop PC and PC laptop.

Again, if you are trying it under Firefox a Java extension has to load.  You will first see a green puzzle like piece and it will ask you to download the extension - in Firefox.  I think this is a bit different than the normal Java install program.  I have tried it on a couple of my home systems and now my Dell PC at work.  No trouble on any of them for me.  Did you try your Mac at work yet Kenny?

this has to be a security setting... nothing else would make sense. you tried all the latest versions of everything and it didn't work so I don't think it is a software issue.

Well it doesn't work on my Mac at work either.. I swear it must be me.. I just am not meant to chat on these boards. I get the same screen that I get on my PC.

And yes Rico I was using the latest Firefox on my PC at home and got nothing.

I'm using FireFox on Linux. It works. If you have the NoScript extension for FireFox, it'll block Java too.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it's a security thing too.  Java is a bit funny with some setups.  Kind of once it's blocked, it's hard to get it back.  IE for Mac?  Wow...didn't even know that even existed.  But then I'm not a Mac user.

Rico, I think you should change the name of the room to TrekSF

Well, I just tried the chat thing, and it works fine. I think that you have some sort of firewall on you router network, that's why in won't work on either of your comps Kenny.

Macs do funny things with browsers. It kinda screws up some flash player pulgins also.
