I just installed Version 6 Build 8 and FireFox 3. For some reason, the applet looks as though it is beginning to boot up, but after a while, a message comes up saying "Install Java to Play" with a link to Sun. Anyone know why?

Probably off-topic, but is a heavily flickering Duke expected?

Does this happen with all applets or just particular ones?
Does our simple 'Test java' applet work correctly?

If it is a specific applet can you post the URL? If is not a specific applet, can you open the console to see if there is any messages? Also, what OS are you using?

Thanks for responding. Until now it seemed as though all Applets didn't work, but the Test worked fine. I am on Windows XP SP2.

Can you provide one URL of an applet that is not working? Is their any text in the Java console?
