Another noob... another startup problem. When I click to spectate, Firefox asks me what I want to do with the ffblive file & offers me the option to open it with Firefox.

When I accept this, a new blank tab is opened and nothing else happens.

Any suggestions are welcome.

sounds like you need to install Java type Java in google, go to the official Java web site and download the software, then try and spectate again.

and welcome to the site Smile

It appears I have Java installed now

java -version
java version "1.8.0_31"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_31-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 25.31-b07, mixed mode)

But still no joy (restarted my browser after installing java in Ubuntu 14:10)

Will try my worklaptop on Tuesday (the only windows-running piece of rust I have command of) to see if it will run on that.

Hmm not sure to be honest, you will need to wait for a linux user to come online, Linux is pretty alien to me and the problems are usually fixed in wierd ways Very Happy

when you click on the spectate button it should download a .jnlp file which you can then run to open the client.

You need to ensure that jnlp files are opened with the java web start app (javaws <-- Note the ws at the end there).
