Java plugin doesn't work in Chrome - how can I fix this?

January 11Hits:1

This used to work fine until a week or so ago, and I am not sure what has changed since then. I have just uninstalled what seems to be all the JVM stuff on my machine and reinstalled with the latest recommended Java version from java.com (1.6, update 23). The plugin works fine in IE and Firefox, but in Chrome it fails and the pages that try to use the plugin act as if Java is not installed. I have tried this in both Chrome 8 and Chrome 9 with the same result.

How can I diagnose and fix this?

Answers

If you are using 64-bit Windows, only IE supports 64-bit Java. Chrome and Firefox will only work if you install the 32-bit Java.

For more details - Google support

it is an easy fix , I also had a lot of trouble with java in chrome

go to this web site http://www.java.com/en/javafx/

chose the 32 bit java FX for most people download and install your problem is ficex

I still have problem with emails though

Just now I ran into this issue, which was caused by an MSI installer trying to update Java and fracking things up. Basically Chrome looks at registry to find a better java version than the System32 one, so it accesses this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins inhere @java.com/JavaPlugin,version=x.x.x is where the RIGHT path of the plugin is defined. Check that Path entry against the actual path and if it's not matching, that this is the issue. In a 32 bit Windows 7 it should be (or mine is) "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\plugin2\npjp2.dll".

You can also add URL of the site that you have problems with to the trusted sites in the Java control panel. Then, it will ask you if you want to run Java when you open the page.

This works across browsers.

On the OS X side, if you can't access the control panel, you can whitelist a site by adding it to the file /Library/Application Support/Oracle/Java/Deployment/security/exception.sites. You'll have to create the file if it doesn't exist.

I did all the above however after half an hour still cannot get it to run. I reviewed all steps, I already did correct. Eventually found that although I had closed the chrome user interface, the service still running which means chrome has not yet been restarted, so I killed that chrome process running in background, and IT WORKS!

I agree about the 32 bit Java for Chrome. Anyway, after installing Java for the gazillionth time, still not finding the plugin in chrome, I went to the control panel and clicked on Java 32bit. The Java Control Panel opened. Under the security tab I checked Enable Java Content in the Browser. Under the Advanced tab I checked the box under Java Plugin. Restart chrome and voila! :) Hope this works for you; I've been dealing with this problem for at least a month.

In a tab in Chrome type the following into the omnibar to open the Plugin list: chrome://plugins/. A list of installed plug-ins will be displayed. Find the Java plugin, then check the box "Always allowed".

Since version 45, Google Chrome no longer supports Java applets.
