Patent Alert: Problem with Firefox and older Java versions
On April 2, Mozilla Foundation announced that the Firefox browser would start blocking older versions of the Java plug-in from running.
When accessing EFS-Web for Registered eFilers and Private PAIR with Firefox, an error message may appear on the Authentication Page stating: Java Not Enabled.
USPTO recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of Java, which is Version 6 Update 31. Please visit Java.com using your Firefox browser, click on “Free Java Download”, and follow the installation steps provided.
The above email came from the USPTO. The funny thing is that I always have problems using Firefox or Chrome when filing online (even with the latest versions of java). I hate to say this but my default is using Internet Explorer (IE) for my patent filings. That is about the only time I actually use IE. Big Chrome fan here 🙂
