I have been wrestling with this for over a day now. I have a Fedora 20 physical system running Firefox 38.0.5. When I go to the java site to verify my version I get an error saying "The Java plugin has crashed". My version of java is at the latest.
Name : jre1.8.0_60 Version : 1.8.0_60 Release : fcs Architecture: x86_64
I also have the latest JDK installed:
yum list installed *java* Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit Installed Packages java-1.8.0-openjdk.x86_64 :126.96.36.199-40.b14.fc20 java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless.x86_64 1:188.8.131.52-40.b14.fc20
And more info here:
java -version java version "1.8.0_60" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-b27) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode)
The plugin in Firefox shows: (this is from the "about:plugins" in FF)
Java(TM) Plug-in 11.60.2 File: libnpjp2.so Path: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so Version: 11.60.2 State: Enabled Next Generation Java Plug-in 11.60.2 for Mozilla browsers
I have done the following:
Removed, re-installed Java. Removed, re-installed FF. Tried different Java versions. Tried Opera.
I am not sure what to try next. Any help is much appreciated.
