Just now I noticed that Chrome would not run Java applets.
See one of these for example.
The familiar coffee cup appears, then nothing.
More sleuthing than should have been necessary revealed a fix.
I have “Do not allow …” selected.
It would seem that this also controls Java.
In my opinion there are here three Chrome UI bugs:
As of 2011 Oct 19 the problem persists with Chrome 16.0.912.2 canary.
- Chrome > TitleBar > Help > "Java" is useless.
- When disabled, there is no indication of why Java does not run.
