Java, Mountain Lion: Chome: Doesn't Work Safari: Does Work

Since my first install I haven't been able to get Java pages like logmein to work via Chrome. They work without issue in Safari.

I had no issues before the ML upgrade.

Ideas?

Try getting Java directly from Oracle.

1.7.0_06 is the latest version for download on that site.

Here is the direct link: »download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java···-x64.dmg

That's the one I downloaded and as soon as I open the installer it says that.

Open the Java Preferences app in the Utilities folder. If you see Java SE 7 there drag it to the top of the list and check java -version again.

and you've rebooted I'm sure... well something is seriously f00bar here... not sure b/c mine installed on all 4 of my computers w/o any errors or anything. Somehow your installation must have messed up. There must be a way to manually uinstall Java -- does it install to /bin? should be able to just delete its directory and re-install it.

Defiantly have rebooted, a few times. I've had this issue since the original install but could never be bothered to fix it and just used the older version I suppose via safari. This was an upgrade from 10.7.

There is nothing under /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/

Use Oracle's Java pref pane the installer adds to System Preferences (control panel). You should see it there. Apple's Java panel won't show it even if it is properly installed (I know mine doesn't).

You can also run Java ID tests to double check which build of Java is being run.

Well I tried following this tutorial although for an older version of OS X.

»reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-10···mfiredir

I was then able to install with that package but now java doesn't work period.

Try reinstalling Java for OS X from Apple. Maybe something got borked up and a reinstall will put everything back to a default Java setup.

The Apple version tells me a newer version of that package is already installed. I suppose i'll have to do a clean install eventually or say good riddance to Java.

It can't be this hard to remove java so that you can do a reinstall. Maybe you can manually kill off Java, at least to a point in which the installers 2012-004 and the real Oracle installer will run without saying the newer version is installed. Don't give up...surrender is not an option!

So I just went to download Java and apparently Chrome isn't 64bit, thus doesn't support Java anymore?

Chrome does not support Java 7. Java 7 runs only on 64-bit browsers and Chrome is a 32-bit browser.

If you download Java 7, you will not be able to run Java content in Chrome and will need to use a 64-bit browser (such as Safari or Firefox) to run Java content within a browser. Additionally, installing Java 7 will disable the ability to use Apple Java 6 on your system.

It would also seem in my attempt to remove Java by only removing the Java specific files based on the article I linked, I've hosed the system from allowing me to use spotlight, mount disk images, or open iTunes. Although I suppose it could also be the 10.8.1 update I installed a few short hours ago as I haven't done any of those three items since.

Strange.

Wow, <boggle> I'm frankly amazed that Chrome is 32bit. I had to go look it up.

It sounds like you may need to do a clean install. That solved a lot of the problems I had with Lion.

I haven't updated (which will be a clean install) to ML yet. I'm waiting for a good, stable version (maybe 10.8.2?), and waiting for the drivers for my Fast Track Ultra to be updated to 10.8.

Oh, there's a choice? Good to know.

So I went and downloaded it again, and it was 32-bit. Is this a developer release or something? You erased your screen shot before I could look at it.

Nothing special as far as I know. I just got it off the Chrome Site IIRC.

Huh, I would think of looking there. Also, looks like it's a beta?

It may have started as a Beta, but I am not sure what it is now. I have had it for at least 6 months and I get automatic updates.

No issues to report.

Did you see this?

How to get the new version?

If you don't have Google Chrome, install it from google.com/chrome

Subscribe to the developer preview channel. This is required even if you've previously subscribed to the channel.

Wait until the new version is downloaded (you may force the updatie by opening the "About Google Chrome" dialog).
