Application Blocked By Security Settings

I am unable to access my GlobeInvestor Streaming Quotes (http://finserv.globeinvestor.com/fcclient8/mainframe.htm) via GlobeInvestorGold.com. When I click on the "Tracker" link on the GlobeInvestor Gold website to access my streaming quotes, I get a pop up with an error stating:

Name: fccapp Location: http://finserv.globeinvestor.com Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.

I have restarted Firefox numerous times. I have reset Firefox. I have re-installed Java a few times and I have also updated all plugins. I am running Firefox on my MacBook Pro. If you could provide any assistance, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance.

hello KarenToronto, this message isn't coming from firefox but from the java plugin - please refer to oracle's documentation: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/appsecuritydialogs.xml

Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.

The problem may not be Firefox. Check out your firewall and your anti-virus settings.

Note that you can get a possibly colored Lego icon on the left end of the location bar that indicates that Firefox is blocking a plugin.

Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

It is possible that the cookies.sqlite file that stores the cookies is corrupted if clearing cookies doesn't work.

Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete other present cookies files like cookies.sqlite-journal in the Firefox profile folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.

Re: Application Blocked By Security Settings

You need to change the settings in your Java Control Panel. To do this:

1) click the apple logo in the top left hand corner of the computer screen, then click system preferences

2) Find and double click on the Java logo. The Java Control Panel should open. If it doesn't, click "Reopen the Java Control Panel"

3) In the Java Control Panel, click the "Security" tab.

4) Click "Edit site list" and add the address of the site that is blocked. Click Okay.

5) Click Okay again and try to access your streaming quote applet.


If this doesn't work, go back into the "Security" tab in the Java Control Panel and drag the "Security Level" bar to Medium. This will allow you to access your streaming quotes until you figure out how to add the site exception.

Re: Application Blocked By Security Settings

Thank you for your reply Phillip. I don't know why but it took over half the day before I managed to get the pop up window saying "Do you want to run this application?". This solved the issue after I allowed it to run. Thanks again.

Re: Application Blocked By Security Settings

Thank you for your reply Javamann. I changed both security settings (by adding the website address to the site that was blocked and I also lowered my security setting to its lowest) prior to submitting my post in the forum. I don't know why it did not work but somehow the issue resolved itself over half a day later. Thanks again.

Re: Application Blocked By Security Settings

I am unable to use java to use interactive puzzle from puzzles.kingdigital.com ever since I updated yesterday to Java 7 update 51. I have tried everything that I can find on your help/support site and nothing works. I just continue to get the message that says "Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application (meaning Java) from running. Can you help me?

My security setting in the Java Control Panel is already set to medium. I have added already added puzzles.kingdigital.com to the list of trusted sites but the problem remains unresolved.
