Rich noted that my computer doesn't have Java. I haven't installed it yet. In the meantime, here are my :doh: dumb :doh: questions for today:

In Firefox > Tools, it lists Java Script Console. There are numerous errors listed there.

If I don't have Java, why would I have a Java Script Console?

Why would it list errors?

What significance are the errors?

In Internet Explorer > Tools, there is no Java Script Console listed.

If Firefox has a Java Script Console, why doesn't Internet Explorer have one?

Thanks,

Lina

Lina,
IE is not FF. The errors are the sites you couldn't see right because you don't have java installed.
Lina, install and quit with the questions java!!!!

I agree with Rich that you should go ahead and download Java support. It is completely independent of your IE stack overflow error problem and the current Windows updates.

It can be downloaded from:
http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_xpi.jsp

If you download from Firefox, you probably will have to add www.java.com (http://www.java.com) to your authorized download sites.

The current version is 5.0 Update 7

I'm keeping my fingers crossed ...... no longer getting Microsoft IE Stack Overflow alerts.

In between thunder storm forecasts today, I'll run AV and spyware scanners and then download Java from Internet Explorer (avoid a potential problem?). .... :redface:

Thanks.

Grrrrr. Stand by! Watch out! Out of the way! I'm ready to throw my computer out the window. Maybe I'm too old (and maybe senile?) for stuff like this. Why can't I understand and follow computer-related instructions? .... :frusty: .... :loco: .... :doh: .... :hurt:

When I used Firefox to download java, I went to Tools > Options > Content, and added www.java.com in the Exceptions for "Warn me when websites try to install extensions or themes." I got this message:

XPInstall not supported by this browser..
I tried using IE (both with FF as default browser, and then IE as default browser) to install Java as directed. It looks like it doesn't install, and I can't understand the explanations as to why.

If you can't help me tomorrow night on Paltalk, I will just have to wait until one of my sons comes to town.....they were just here, so it will be a long while.

I'm off to the pool, so frustrated I may drown myself!

I have noticed that you get different download sites on www.java.com (http://www.java.com) depending on the browser that you use to access it. I suspect that different installers are used. The reference above was for Firefox.

From IE
http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_ie.jsp

From Firefox
http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_xpi.jsp

You can use one or the other but not both.

Another safer approach is to go to http://www.java.com with any browser and select the Free Download. You will be directed to the proper download.

From IE
http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_ie.jsp This worked. I checked to see if it installed. Said, congrats, you have it. Why then is it not listed in Add/Remove Programs?

I tried your other suggestions first, and here's what happened:

From Firefox
http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_xpi.jsp . "XPI not supported by this browser."

Another safer approach is to go to http://www.java.com with any browser and select the Free Download. You will be directed to the proper download. Used Firefox. "XPI not supported by this browser."

Thanks a million, Terry. .... :kiss: .... Now the only question I have is why Java is not listed in Add/Remove Programs.

P.S. I couldn't drown myself if I wanted to. Thunder and lightening closed the pool. :)

Your are certainly welcome

The Java support should be listed in Add / Remove Programs as
---> J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 7

I presume that it went through the install after the download. You need to restart your computer to have it in effect but it should show up in Add / Remove right away.

It was there. Thanks.

Beats me why they can't select titles which would be easier for the non-guru to identify. But then again, look at some of the titles our military chooses for military engagements! .... :wacko:

FWIW, Java, and Java script are two different animals.
