Java works in 64-bit browser but not 32-bit

I know about Java's problems and on the one computer I have it installed on I have it disabled.

I needed to print a coupon which requires Java. Enabled it, closed browser, restarted but never could get the Applet notification. This went on for days. Decided to try the 64-bit browser (IE8) on my system and it works fine.

I do have both 32-bit and 64-bit Java so why would it not work in the 32-bit browser?

If you're using Firefox the Java plug-ins maybe disabled (thanks to Mozilla).

It should work. I have latest Java version running on both Win7 and Win8 32 bit systems. Make sure the version of Java you have is the latest patched version.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.

I installed both 32-bit and 64-bit Java at the same time as I typically do. They both show the correct version.

I know it "should work". I'm glad I tried the 64-bit browser so at least I got my coupon but still wonder what is wrong.
