    okay. Im thinking this is only a mac thing but may affect windows also.. steps needed to fix it it..

    1) uninstall java - open finder---open applications--type java in the search box-- move javaappletplugin.pluging to trash.

    2) download version 8 update 31 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...8-2177648.html
    you will have to make an account

    Install java.

    According to another read I found is that chrome is taking out npapi support and will no longer allow it, which is required to run java as a bunch of other apps.. here is the link to enable npapi in the new version.. https://java.com/en/download/faq/chrome.xml.

    If your having issues in windows..

    1_ uninstall java in add remove programs, follow the same link I posted earlier and download the windows version

    Hope this helps..

    DO NOT--- allow it to re update itself..

    I havent been able to get into chat for quite awhile now, not on my iphone, my ipad, or my HP computer. Really frustrating.

    Just update Java. Java will remove the old version as part off the update.

    Windows 8.1 Firefox 37. Java 8.45 all is good That's all the latest and greatest.

    Chrome, ehhh not so much. Apparently google decided not to play so nice with Java a few versions back. It may still work if you roll back your installed version if you see the plugin not being allowed in Chrome? Just a thought.

    Android, nope. It is googles operating system after all. May have likely went the way of Chrome? Looks like a bust though. iPhone? Not a clue. Don't have one, don't plan on it. Good luck!

    One other note: It is possible to have more than one version of Java installed on a machine and it's possible to have Chrome use the older version while everything else uses the newer version.

    The Java updates include security patches though. Just saying it can be done if it's a must.

    For Chrome, try the following:

    1.In your URL bar, enter:
    chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

    2.Click the Enable link for the Enable NPAPI configuration option.
    3.Click the Relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page.

    You should be able to use the Java add-in in chat then. Keep in mind that Chrome does not support NPAPI any longer so this fix will likely stop working in the future.

    I give up. Haven't been able to get into chat for awhile. I've tried downloading the new JAVA, 8 something. couldn't get it done, followed Tortuga's instructions, and FINALLY got it installed in my computer and uninstalled all the old JAVA. Thinking HURRAY, now I can get on chat, I attempted, and it keeps telling me I need to install JAVA. I HAVE installed JAVA. Shoot, I give up

    I finally was able to get the chat room to come up several times but I am always the only one on there so I guess its not working for me.
