    Java & Windows 8


    Hi all! I have this little problem and I'm not 100% sure that it is windows 8 related but honestly I think it is..

    I'm running windows 8 RTM 64bit and it seems that I can't get java work properly with firefox or chrome.. With IE it works perfectly. We are talking about java 7 update 7 and yes it is 32bit java, not 64bit. With every page where java is needed it says 'Install java' etc.

    Any suggestions? Help me out please! I don't know what to do...

    I've used google to search related problems but have not find any fix that works...


    And sorry for my bad english! I still hope you understand what the problem is here.

    I think you have to install java separately for IE and other browsers.
