    Default Applet Security Settings

    I have an applet working fine with Firefox 3.6.13 and Java -1.6.0 (on linux)
    On Win7 and Firefox 18.0.1 and Java 7u21 I get a pop-up:
    Apllication Blocked by Security Settings
    Your security settings have blocked a local application from running.

    How do I solve this?

    Default Re: Applet Security Settings

    Most browsers, since the beginning of the year, have taken to defaulting to blocking unsigned Java applets from running as the default setting.
    It might even be the Java plugin doing this, thinking about it.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Sign the applet?
    Dig into the Firefox settings and see where this is set?

    Go to the control panel, then to Java, then to the Security tab. Here you have the option to enable or disable Java content in the browser, and to set the restrictions on content that does run- only signed content, no unsigned contend on older versions of Java, or any unsigned content.

    I was talking about your Windows control panel, not a particular browser.

    I found an easy solution.

    Put in the HTML- code in the <applet> the following:
    <security>
    <all-permissions />
    </security>

    I guess this is an very easy way of solving the problem.

    Depending on who your target user is, that might not be an acceptable solution because it causes your applet to run outside the security sandbox.

    I already gave you specific instructions on how to change your Java security settings. What happened when you tried that?

    You're going to have to be more specific than that. What exactly did you change? What exactly happened when you tried to run the applet? What exact settings are you using, in both your Java control panel and the applet tag or jnlp? Is the code signed?
