about:plugins doesn't show Java in windows

Post by Kreijstal » 2020-01-21, 08:49

Hi! First of all, thanks for making this wonderful beautiful browser that supportst NPAPI, actually the reason I installed palemoon it is specifically because it supports Java.

Java installed, check
Palemoon is installed, check
npjp2.dll exists, check
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\@java.com/JavaPlugin,version=\Path = "C:\Program Files\Java\jre-10.0.2\bin\plugin2\npjp2.dll" check
about:plugins, no Java found.

But I just installed palemoon, maybe I missed some essential step that I had to do? I can't wait to run Java again!

Please make sure that the architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) of the plugin matches that of the browser.
