after installing java 7 updater 9 on my imac, i have been unable to play any of the card games out at yahoo. this is very frustrating as I have been playing there for many a year.... I have Lion 10.7.5 installed and have installed and uninstalled many times the update from oracle as directed when I went out to play and was informed that I needed plug in ... well plugged in and am now left out to NOT play at the only game site I frequented... I can see other players/tables but when i attempt to join or start table, I am booted it appears and receive some sort of error on table, click error to find something about NULLPOINTER something, any help in this matter wouuld be much, much appreciated... I have even reinstalled the 10.7.5 pkg over my already existing 10.7.5 as was suggested by someone that blogged in one of the discussion groups ... plain outright frustrated, please help!!

    Same situation, exactly - I tried the OS re-install too. And re-installing the Oracle java does nothing. (Safari and Firefox)


    Help, anyone?

    Same situation here.  Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't fix the issue.  I hope apple/java/yahoo can work up a solution.

    same problem. took my macbook pro to apple genius. Nothing can be done other than yahoo updating their system. old programs won't work and need to be updated.

    To get Apple's Java 6 plug-in working again...


    After you do all the Apple updates...


    1) Remove the the existing symbolic link:


    sudo rm /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin


    2) Create a new symbolic link:


    sudo ln -s /System/Library/Java/Support/Deploy.bundle/Contents/Resources/JavaPlugin2_NPAPI .plugin /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin


    Note that the source file is slightly different than the one mentioned in the Oracle instructions on reverting to Apple's Java 6.
