How to enable Java Plugin in  Waterfox Classic Browser? How can i view Applets and JavaFX Applications in Browser?

1) In order to view Java Applications in browser you need to have 2 things:

-  Waterfox Classic Browser ( For 64 bit Windows OS and 64 bit JRE (Java) Installation use 64 bit  Waterfox Classic Browser)

- You need to install Java from Oracle site into your computer. Once installed you will be able to access Java Console from Control Panel of

Windows OS. There are two types of Waterfox Browser - 1) Classic 2) Current. I use Classic Waterfox to see java applications

2)  Waterfox Classic ( Browser is only browser that supports Java Plugin for lifetime. Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome do not support java plugin.

3) You need java jre 1.8 on your windows os. This you can download from Oracle website (

Download 1.8 version of jre as it has inbuilt support for javafx applications which can be used to view video and audio files. Secondly you will have to register with oracle in order to download jre and it is free to register with oracle website. .


4) After installation of these two softwares it is time to specify URL in the Exception Site List of Java Console. Exception site list is in

web settings. This is necessary for Self signed certificates of Java Application. 

My Comments:

Oracle should make this whole thing very user-friendly and browser friendly. Javafx with J2EE (Database Integration) has the potential to revolutionaries the web application and has lot of applications in field of Engineering, Medicine, Art , Design etc. For solving present day social problems this technology will form base for new developments in Science and Technology.
