As of yesterday's update to version 52 (article), Firefox no longer supports any NPAPI plugins but Flash, and states that v53 will do away with it altogether. We're very much on borrowed time with our chat rooms. I haven't as yet found a way to get around this in v52 so if you're still on v51 you may want to turn off automatic updates if you already haven't.

Thank you, K'hal.  I have been fending off updates to FF for quite a while, but have no idea how long that will last.

When was there normal? When did this happen? How did I miss it? Was this when I went on that five-minute break three months ago? It was only five minutes. I turn my back, and you guys go "normal" on me?

Webbie is very close to rolling out our HTML5 chat rooms, so we won't need Java at all.  I will check in with him again.

If anyone has Microsoft Edge, you can us it to open Internet Explorer (which still uses Java.)  I know it's IE, but at least it's something to help for the moment.

And for the Windows users that are not on Win 10, you already have IE installed already.  I know I shouldn't say this, because it will jinx me, but Firefox is still working for my room access, as well.  We are 1-2 weeks away from debuting the non-Java chat rooms, btw.
