64 bit Java

Post by Yavanius » 2017-06-16, 23:35

Went to Java site to update Java and got this message:

64-bit Java for Windows
Recommended Version 8 Update 131 (filesize: 62.62 MB)
Release date April 18, 2017

We have detected you are using the 64-bit version of Firefox which will not run the Java plugin from this browser. More info

More info -> https://java.com/en/download/help/firefox_java.xml

Which is ironic since Java is already installed...

Apparently Java is working because I tried checking at nVidia's site.

Sun...err, Oracle does still give you the link to download Java though...

They detect "Firefox" and as such tell you that NPAPI plugin support has ended on Firefox...
You can always shoot them a message that their detection is wrong, of course.

Wasn't anything critical... just making a note of it.

Good thing this isn't something for a car... this won't work with your car but you can still install it...
