    "Damn" is not profanity.

    Im getting failed to validate certificate. I have whitelisted the website, security settings on lowest available (high), and tried to disable as much certificate things as I can.

    That's in the eye of the beholder; better not do it again.

    What version of Java is it you are using?

    I would point out that a number of browsers will disable Java automatically if it's below a certain version. I seem to remember Apple being the first lot to do that back during the security scare a couple of years ago.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Really? We're going to make a point about a single word, even when it is not used in any kind of profane way?

    it's not so much about the word per sť but it's not really necessary, especially when trying to ask for help
    besides rules say to keep it pg-13 right :p

    I can confirm that both Mozilla (Firefox) and Google (Chrome) also do that.

    If you want to run something outdated, better make sure it can run outside of a browser basically. But browsers will likely have built-in overrides. This may work for Firefox for example:

    8.31 or something. Im just too lazy and dont give a zero about updates. Java works fine on other apps tho, and It says "Failed to validate certificate", even while whitelisted.

    You normally get that error when an application has a certificate that can't be validated by the Certificate Authority. Check your security level in the control panel (Java).
