Depends on the plugin, I suppose. If you don't have Sun's JRE and need it, this will occur (fix: install manually).

Give us a site where this happens and maybe we can find the plug in for you.

Hehe, English motherfucker! Do you speak it?

Seriously... techno challenged here...



Summary: If you do not have Sun Microsystem's Java Runtime Environment (Java), and the site you are visiting requires it, the problem you are experiencing will commonly occur. Your only solution would be to go to Sun's site, look for the JRE, and install it yourself.

Try this.

Click on "Get it now." I've never installed it this way before, but it should do the trick.

Thanks for the tip.

Heh, oops. Sorry 'bout that. I meant to give an example of a plugin (Sun's Java Runtime Environment) that will not install automatically, and demonstrates the same behavior that you describe. Other plugins, like Flash, seem to install fine this way.

Seems to depend on the plugin.

No problem. My whole family is "computer illiterate" so I'm used to doing walkthroughs and "geek-speak" translations.
