Why can't I connect to Quotemedia Quotestream with Firefox when I can with Chrome?
Hi, I have an account with a company called "Interactive Investor International". I buy and sell shares and use "Quotestream" to monitor Level2 Data. I am trying to migrate from XP to Ubuntu and would like to use Firefox as a browser. I have found however that Google Chrome is ok for Quotestream, but not Firefox. Is there a solution for this problem? 'bold text'
Grab the self extracting file from here: http://java.com
Follow the install directions here to get the plugin set up: http://java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml#enable
As jeffk says, install the Sun (Oracle?) Java kit. Assuming that you're using Fedora, Fedora's IcedTea while quite good for most situations isn't quite up to running quotestream (yet).
If you're using a Fedora install then grab the appropriate 'rpm' from http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp install the 'rpm' (they're actually shell wrapped rpms so you run them as opposed to use rpm to install them). after that you should run these 3 lines
Note: the path "/usr/java/jre1.6.0_26" varies by java release so you'll have to adjust accordingly
- alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/jre1.6.0_26/bin/java 3
- alternatives --install /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/jre1.6.0_26/bin/javaws 1
(this one varies depending on if you're using 32bit or 64bit)
- alternatives --install /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so.x86_64 /usr/java/jre1.6.0_26/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 2
Then just select that version
- alternatives --config java
- alternatives --config javaws
- alternatives --config libjavaplugin.so.x86_64
This way you can flip back to IcedTea should you encounter any issues
