How can I globally re-enable Java for my users?


I support a large number of users who are... let's say, technically challenged. virtually every site they need to use for work requires Java, as do many of the ones they use at home. It's not practical for me to go around and train them all how to figure out whether a site uses Java and how to enable Java when necessary.

Is there any way for me to just globally enable Java on their systems?

Forcing them all to switch to Chrome or IE would bring other problems, but will be significantly easier than trying to train them new behaviors with Firefox.

OK, this was a really mean answer, but I just noticed that whilst I was busy writing all sorts of of curses, it has been decided to roll back the block, phew ! Hence this is in place of the mean answer :-)

Hello everyone,

This thread seems to have turned into a discussion and not a support request. I will be locking this thread due to that.
