    Default mac and java wont let me on beesource chat

    from what i understand, the software for beesource isnt compatible with the newer versions of java and os10 for mac? I cant get onto chat with safari, so i started using firefox... firefox said i need the newest version of java... which i have... and the same thing with chrome...

    so if anyone can tell me how to get into beechat, would be most wonderful...

    The latest firefox has java disabled. This gives instructions to re-enable java in firefox.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eW44BOyWEfo

    Open Firefox
    Enter about:config in the URL address bar
    Accept that you will not do any harm
    Click in the search bar and type "Block"
    Look for extensions.blocklist.enabled
    Change this to false by double clicking the item.

    I have not done this as I don't let my java or firefox or operating system auto update, and I never updated unless something stops working from using what I'm currently using. I make no claims as to if this fix listed works or not, it's just what I've found from searching, that other's say works. Good luck.

    Is it possible to get a more user friendly beechat? I'm sure half the people can't connect and stop trying.

    Hey barry.. any chance of you updating the software on this site? Beechat's incompatible with newer versions of java.... and most devices are moving away from java, period... so people cant chat anymore...

    I will see if I can locate a new chat plugin that will be more current and not require Java or Flash.

    Thank you Philip,
    Our chat has activity just about every night, but only a handful of us now. We seem to be shrinking in size, but there are a small handful of us old hold outs that use the older technology that make at least a short showing each night. It would be nice to have a greater showing. Maybe updating to HTML5 or whatever is needed to be more compatible with mobile devices, newer OS updates, and newer browser updates can help that.

    None of the chat plugins are perfect. Will do my best to find a decent solution.

    Noted. I suspect we may be able to update the current plugin, I want to try that first. We will have a new mobile skin for the site launching this week. It wont have a chat room built in but it will format the screen better for a mobile layout.

    We're trying to find a reasonable alternative to "Addon Chat" as it relies heavily on Java

    What do you guys think of a shoutbox? It would appear when you log in as part of the forum so you don't need to be taken from the site to a chat room. You can collapse it if you don't want to see it and can join or leave the conversation as you like without having to log in or out of the chat room. This is a viable option that is less likely to need the same level off maintenance. Please let me know your thoughts on this.

    I've never really been a chat guy but I think it's worth a look. Might be great. Maybe we should try it.

    ****, Chat won't work on my computer now. I click on 'Chat', and it tells me I need JAVA, I HAVE JAVA. I even deleted JAVA from my computer and reloaded it, and Chat still won't let me in. Not a happy camper......
    Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.
