I have Mountain Lion installed. I followed the above article a couple of weeks back, and successfully downgraded from 7 to 6 (I needed it as I use Google Chrome - don't tell me I should use Safari, I know Java 7 works there but that's not the point).

 

Today I tried my javaapplet (online banking) and only saw a grey window, not even a "pluging missing" or anything. When I visit http://javatester.org/version.html I can see nothing. I tried the above article again, still nothing (note: I do restart Chrome every time and have no other browsers open).

 

Seems I'll have to upgrade to 7 and use Safari instead...? Do you guys experience the same? Does anyone happen to have a solution?

 

Thanks a lot in advance.
