How to enable Java in web page using Firefox and Ubuntu 16.04


Hello everyone,

I am trying to start game in address http://www.80stopgames.com/site/node/2. Page opens but nothing happens - just page with "Add-on is required to view content" (I am using Finnish Linux so I don't know the exact English equivalent). In page there are instructions on how to change security but instructions are for Windows. What am I doing wrong? How can I change security or is the problem somewhere else?

Well it seems that I don't have Java plugin installed. I suppose there is some page where there are instructions for setting up Java plugin?

EDIT:

Managed to install. Thank you for pointing me to right direction.

Hi...

If you'd like Oracle's version and you're using Ubuntu or an Ubuntu based distribution, you can install version 7 here or version 8 here.

O, if the issue is resolved, please mark this thread as "SOLVED" by clicking on "Thread Tools" directly above your initial post. Thanks!

Regards...
