    three points.

     

    1. you are in the wrong forum, This is for Mac software circa 2003

     

    2. In OS 10.6 Snow Leopard /Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences > select Java

    Check your web browser preferences to enable Java.

    In Safari it is under Preferences > Security. select it.

    In Firefox it is under Tools > Add ons > Java plug ins: Enable it.

     

    3. Java is not a secure protocol and for any bank that uses it I would question their security in general. I have used several online bank accounts and none require Java.

    I think you should change banks. Not joking

    In general it is helpful to state which Mac OS you have. 10.7 10.8?

    I think in the latest OS release Apple does not install Java, as it considers it a potential vulnerability, but it can be installed if needed.

     

    If your problem is just with Chrome, don't use it for banking. Use another like Safari or Firefox.

     

    Open Safari and go to this site to see if Java is installed.

    10.6.8 Thanks. It is the same as I use. Here is a screen shot of Safari Preferences panel with Java enabled, sitting on top of the web page I linked to earlier.

    I wonder if your version of Safari is the difference. If you don't have it, here is the download;

    Safari 5.1.7 for Snow Leopard

    Good to hear it is now working.

    I also use different web browsers for different purposes. It saves me from altering settings.
