Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection. I made sure that the Safari and Java preferences were set the same on each machine but still no joy.
On two of the Macs, as soon as I fired up the Citrix app, the Java vpn window would show 'error'. Then I remembered that I had done some Java development in the past and installed various jdks from Oracle so I ran: That was on the working Mac.
It's inevitable that older software becomes obsolete, the same way older hardware does.
I think the actual hint here is a reminder that if a site misbehaves, changing the user agent can be an effective troubleshooting tool.] Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. There is this nifty free app called Lin Castor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL.
If you want Google searches to go back to the modern style, you need to change your User-Agent string.
For Safari, enable the Develop Window and use an option in there that works. [crarko adds: I don't have an older system active at the moment to try this.
Im tempted to go for this from my 4 lines at 0 and one free line i dont use but im no sure i want to lose a free line.
Also dont like the idea of having hot spot/tethering at 3g wich is what the 4 for 0 has.
Perhaps in preparation for i OS 8.] As of August 29, 2014, Google has decided to intentionally break old browsers.
They say it's not a bug, it's by design here, even though Google's support page says it accepts Safari 4 as a fully supported browser.
I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.
I'd be curious to know from Mac OSXHints users whether they are experiencing this problem in the first place and if the workaround works for you, too.
And then checked that the reported version of Java was 1.6 on each Mac.
