Java Help

Before you can use Expired Domain Finder, confirm that you have the latest version of Java installed, and is functioning correctly.

Note for Mac Users: Chrome doesn’t support the newest version of Java, use Firefox as a workaround!

To test Java on your computer go here: Check My Java

If your Java is updated and working correctly you will see this on the testing page:

java_test


If you have the latest version of Java, but the tools are still not working, you may need to clear your Java cache.

To clear your Java cache follow the instructions here.

If the Java test linked above is successful, you can use the Expired Domain Finder tool!

 


ANTIVIRUS

YOU MAY NEED TO DISABLE YOUR ANTI-VIRUS, OR COMPONENTS OF YOUR ANTI-VIRUS, TO USE WEBFIRE EFFECTIVELY.

For example the AVG ‘Link Scanner’ component of the AVG suite will cause some of the WebFire tools to perform slowly.

ACTIVATE JAVA PLUGIN – FIREFOX AND CHROME

FIREFOX

Quick Tutorial: Activate Java in Firefox

CHROME

The Chrome browser blocks Java plug-in versions that are out of date or have been identified with security risks. A message notifies you that the plug-in is blocked.

Plug-in out of date

We recommend updating the plug-in before allowing the plug-in to run.

The Java plug-in needs your permission to run

  • If you choose to Run this time, the plug-in will run but you will be asked for permission the next time you visit the site
  • If you choose Always run on this site, the plug-in will run and not ask for permission when you visit the site again.

 


INTERNET BROWSERS

MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING THE LATEST VERSION OF YOUR BROWSER.

Get the latest version of your browser by clicking on the icon below:

  

Safari users will need to use the OSX updater to get the latest version.

If you are using Internet Explorer 8 you will NEED to update your browser, or WebFire will NOT work.
