    Problems with Ie8 and java on Firefox (18)

    Neill_R
      Hello

      I am running on a Windows XP SP3 PC

      Forms [32 Bit] Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
      Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.1.0 - Production
      With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options
      Oracle Toolkit Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
      PL/SQL Version 10.1.0.4.2 (Production)
      Oracle Procedure Builder V10.1.2.0.2 - Production
      PL/SQL Editor (c) WinMain Software (www.winmain.com), v1.0 (Production)
      Oracle Query Builder 10.1.2.0.2 - Production
      Oracle Virtual Graphics System Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
      Oracle Tools GUI Utilities Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
      Oracle Multimedia Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
      Oracle Tools Integration Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
      Oracle Tools Common Area Version 10.1.2.0.2
      Oracle CORE     10.1.0.4.0     Production

      The database runs under Linux on a separate PC.

      I have done something that has caused the IE8 browser to stop interacting with the run form command.

      My question is how to reinstall the correct Java / plugin

      Also on the Linux PC i run Firefox i need guidance on the installation of Java so that I can run forms on that PC too.


      Thank you

          I guess you are using JInit with IE8 with most certainly will cause the browser to crash. See here on how to configure the JPI: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/forms/documentation/forms-jre-131772.pdf

          As for the linux installation;
          Download the java runtime from here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre6u38-downloads-1877409.html
          (if you are on a RedHat based distro which includes Oracle Linux you could use the rpm.bin package) and install it.

          for the plugin registration with firefox you maybe need to do this in addition: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/manual-plugin-install-linux-136395.html

          cheers

            Neil,
            I have done something that has caused the IE8 browser to stop interacting with the run form command.
            Have you tried clearing the browser and Java cache (temporary files)? This is always the first thing I do when there is a problem on the client.

            As to your question:
            Also on the Linux PC i run Firefox i need guidance on the installation of Java so that I can run forms on that PC too.
            I am not a Linux guy, but I did find this article via Google: how to install the java plugin in firefox.

            Hope it helps.
            Craig...
