I can't get any of my browsers Safari, Firefox or Netscape to run a simple applet such as a version checker applet.

Netscape says Java is turned off, and it's not.

I have the latest Java updates from the software update for Tiger.

Before I do a clean install, I thought I'd try here.

From the terminal, java -version gives me this:
java version "1.4.2_09"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_09-232)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-54, mixed mode)

    peptoabysmal, the problem with Netscape is that it needs Java 1.3.1. For it to use 1.4.2 you can download the MRJ plugin from You can test your java and javascript at these sites:

    Java and Javascript

    Java Virtual Machine

    If these don't work you probably need to reinstall Java.
