Tried google but no luck there. Today Firefox and Java wont work. Java runs fine in chrome and IE but not FF. Does anyone know a solution for this problem i seem to be getting?

Actual Java, or JavaScript? What website? What versions of Firefox and Java?

Chrome should use the same plugin as Firefox, so any issue should be fairly common to both. Have you checked the plugin's enabled (Tools -> Addons -> Plugins)?

Well the problem first showed when running iplayer. The window said to make sure javascript was ticked which it was. Then i went and got the latest java download but no luck.

I checked the addons part and all are enabled.

So it isn't Java at all. iPlayer doesn't use Java but rather Flash and JavaScript.

Does YouTube or something like that work?

Yes Youtube works perfectly. So is there another solution to this e.g. flash install?

Just reinstalled flash and hasnt solved the problem, guess its javascript that's the problem

Well, installing something completely unrelated (i.e. Java) definitely won't fix it.
Do you have Flashblock or anything of the like installed? Is it the same in Firefox's safe mode?

Solved the problem by clearing the cache and history. No idea why that sorted the problem but it did.
