I went into Firefox in safe mode by using cap locks to fix Java Plug in.
Next it says to try disabling graphics hardware acceleration. However, it doesn't say how to do that. So, I'm stuck.
I'm not well-versed in computer tech. A brief explanation would be helpful. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can disable hardware acceleration in Firefox here: (you need to close and restart Firefox)
So I am guessing that it is not dangerous. Is that correct?
I was mistaken the error message says plug is not found. It doesn't say what plug in was not found.
It's on a PBS site. I guess I am supposed to know what plug in they're using for this site. I don't know. I also tried it on IE and it didn't work there either.
It seems at times to take a tech genius just to watch a video clip on there. Maybe I should forget it and stick to youtube which works. lol
I read that a certain Java script plug in is dangerous and unstable. Then I read on here that it is OK. Is Java Script dangerous or what?
To avoid confusion:
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
I am trying to simplify this and take one step at a time.
The Java Plug In is unstable and/or dangerous? Please answer Yes or No.
The Java plugin has access to your complete hard drive and thus can be dangerous if you run malicious Java applets.
