Positive news at last! I am well aware this may already be covered but no harm in having it all in one place

Though it was suggested for a while, Mozilla has confirmed continued support for the Java Plugin in Firefox through to the middle of 2018. You need to use the ESR (Extended Support Release) which will continue to receive security updates.

If you try to run a Java plugin, like funkysnooker, it will link to the download page, but in case anyone is having problems, you can get it here :

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/

This means 3 main browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari) are good to go for a year or more yet, by which time Java itself is timetabled to have moved on, however existing versions will continue to work and the site will be migrated to Java Webstart in due course.


The latest version of Java is here : http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Download the offline installer from the above site to avoid the bundled ASK toolbar.

NEVER DOWNLOAD JAVA FROM ANY SITE OTHER THAN JAVA.COM - this is what causes quite a lot of issues, as sites like cnet, download.com etc bundle bloatware, sometimes time-delayed, with downloads.

If you prefer Java 8.31 (which some find prevents the "tournament freeze" bug, you can find the installers here, however this is an old version so may pose security risks so is not recommended by funkysnooker :

32 Bit : http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=101406

64 Bit : http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=101408

EDITED TO UPDATE LINKS

Firefox ESR update 52.1.1 is now live and recommended due to the recent spike in malware (worms love plugins!)

It can be downloaded from the above link.

Well done.

Now all you need to do is stop the admin leaks aka screenshots of contact us messages
