    We have detected you are using Google Chrome and might be unable to use the Java plugin from this browser. Starting with Version 42 (released April 2015), Chrome has disabled the standard way in which browsers support plugins. More info

    Chrome no longer supports NPAPI (technology required for Java applets)

    The Java plug-in for web browsers relies on the cross platform plugin architecture NPAPI, which has been supported by all major web browsers for over a decade. Google's Chrome version 45 (scheduled for release in September 2015) drops support for NPAPI, impacting plugins for Silverlight, Java, Facebook Video and other similar NPAPI based plugins.

    Java applications are offered through web browsers as either a web start application (which do not interact with the browser once they are launched) or as a Java applet (which might interact with the browser). This change does not affect Web Start applications, it only impacts applets.

    If you have problems accessing Java applications using Chrome, Oracle recommends using Internet Explorer (Windows) or Safari (Mac OS X) instead.

    Developers and System administrators looking for alternative ways to support users of Chrome should see this blog regarding Launching Web Start applications.

    JavaScript and Java are two entirely different technologies. It's an unfortunate naming confusion that has existed since the mid-nineties. I can guarantee 100% that's it not a Java issue.

    Hi all,

    My 'Back to top' bottom stopped working too, for several days. This was on my Android cell phone. It works now though, on both my cell and my laptop (Chrome). Thought I would add my 2 cents to aid in the confusion. Ever helpful.
