Updating java on mac

I use the same mechanism to launch 'site specific browsers apps' created by Fluid.

For example I have a JIRA app wrapper which looks for anything staring with

The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all.

Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection. I made sure that the Safari and Java preferences were set the same on each machine but still no joy.

That's why I call it a workaround instead of a fix.

I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.

For Safari, enable the Develop Window and use an option in there that works. [crarko adds: I don't have an older system active at the moment to try this.

Then I remembered the difference between 'System' Java, Java plugins, and Java development kits.They say it's not a bug, it's by design here, even though Google's support page says it accepts Safari 4 as a fully supported browser.If you want Google searches to go back to the modern style, you need to change your User-Agent string.Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working.Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available." I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it.
