Logging in to the chat room would fail requiring a browser "plugin".
Running Firefox 16.0.2. I downloaded the "plugin" which turned out to be a full JRE and it still didn't work.
(edit to add . . . Exiting the session of FF in which I wrote this post and restarting it bumped me to 17.0.1 (which worked on windUp7 Pro 64 bit (this at work) and not my home machines) but they'll be on this FF rev next time run))
This on an ancient (I think it may have a pull starter) Dell desktop running XP SP3.
I moved upstairs to my new Lenovo H520S (like in its second week of service) with WindUp8 64 bit. Same browser, same issue. I ended up just using my iPad's Safari browser and due to an issue nobody seems to admit to with OSX 6.0.1, my session kept getting dropped. My work around for this is to manually reselect the network, then it is fine. But always bites me first.
Anyhow I saw reference that others were enjoying similar issues noted in the wrong place so here I be.
In posting this, I scanned an old thread from Feb of this year but I'd be hard pressed to imagine both machines were having browser issues unless this version of FF itself is at issue.
