Help, I can't get Java to run at all

Issue: Java is either not installed correctly on your computer or another program, likely a firewall program is interfering with it. A number of other causes are possible what makes the source of this issue hard to determine.

Proceed as follows:

Step 1: Determine if you actually can use Java at all. Try to enter the fumbbl chat using the Java applet here: https://fumbbl.com/chat.php . If this doesn't work you may not have Java installed at all, you may try to enter from an access point that is blocking IRC traffic (You may be able to run FFB anyways.) or Java is not properly linked to your browser. If you don't know how to fix this yourself proceed to Step 4. Assuming your browser accesses Java correctly proceed with Step 2.

Step 2: Shut off 1. your firewall, 2. your antivirus program and 3. any other program you are aware of that might interfere with execution of Java and try to start the FFB-Applet again. If either of these variants is fixing the issue you need the change the settings in the program that is causing it to allow Java and FFB to operate or refrain from using the respective program while you use the FFB-client.

Step 3: If Step 2 doesn't help, uninstall all Java versions on your computer. Make sure you have no older versions of Java installed. They can interfere with the FFB-Client. Find the latest Java version for your computer and install it. Hopefully your issue is fixed now.

Step 4: If your issue isn't fixed use the IRC to contact the Administration # fumbbladmin or other users in #fumbbl on server irc.fumbbl.com. If you do not know how to do this or you can't fix your problem, search the forums for an answer or create a new forum topic. https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=posting&mode=newtopic&f=37

Alternative: You can always try to run an older Java version. But be aware that this might create a security risk for you.
