    • CPU:

      Description

      Firefox 29.01 cannot run the "Verify Java" applet from your site without being launched using "Run As Administrator"
      None of our users have admin rights. We do this to prevent unauthorized software (including viruses) from getting into our systems. The current Java will require our IT support group to run Chrome on every workstation and server in the company using their admin accounts in order for Java to function properly. These is also no simple recourse for a user to verify which Java their browser is using now.
