Got Chat working on my desktop (IE, FireFox and Chrome).  


Had to go to the Control Panel on my PC. In the Control Panel Search box, typed "JAVA". Opened Java which brought up the Java Control Panel.


Under the Security Tab, had to check "Enable Java content in the browser." Then Apply.


After I did that, I had to open all three browsers and go into Chat. All three asked to to enable the ChatAddOn.


So Stewart was spot-on (nothing new there): this is a Java Configuration issue.


I'm just not sure what changed from last week when I was able to get into the Chat room. .

But I'm all by myself. :shrug:

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Good work...  I too don't know what changed unless it was a recent update to something else that forced a new update/download of that AddonChat applet.  I know I hadn't been in chat for a while, so I got prompted to download that and I know I had been in chat before without seeing that...  but unlike you guys, mine just worked the first time.


I was beginning to have deja vu, though... because some of what you guys were describing was similar to what I went through months ago when there was a Java 7 update that didn't install correctly and it was a pain to uninstall and re-install to get things working again because in the process I had lost my control panel Java applet so I had no way to configure anything!

Did something change with the chat Friday night? I tried to get into it on my IOS devices and it says the mobile version wasn't enabled for this account?

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Saw several similar reports in chat, from those who came on via lap or desktop.

"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Could not get into chat for this weekend on my ipad.  Kept getting "mobile access is not authorized on the account".  Neither the DBStalk app or safari would allow me entry.
