OVERVIEW In October of 2015, Mozilla had issued an advisory where Firefox Development intends to remove support for most NPAPI plugins by the end of 2016. (NPAPI Plugins in Firefox [https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2015/10/08/npapi-plugins-in-firefox/]) A post on Slashdot [https://tech.slashdot.org/story/17/02/04/2323204/mozilla-to-drop-support-for-all-npapi-plugins-in-firefox-52-except-flash] confirmed this news earlier this week:  "Starting March 7, when Mozilla is scheduled to relea...
In the past FileCatalyst/Unlimi-Tech used its own method of showing applets in browsers. As more browsers became available, Java took it upon themselves to release a standard way to deploy these applets within the browser. This article will show you how to migrate the legacy javascript files to use the new deployJava method. Before making any changes, make a backup of your existing JavaScript file or server side script file that contains the JavaScript code to launch the applet. Download t...
Edit the following lines in the .js file to bring back the old buttons: useToolbar : "false", //Set to false to revert to legacy GUI. Default true useBottomToolbar : "false", //Set to false to revert to legacy GUI. Default true

In some cases, the upload button may not show up within the Mac OS in web browsers such as Safari or FireFox. In order to resolve this, increase the pixel size of the applet's width parameter by about 40-50 pixels.
In some cases of new applet releases, both the core applet (the .jar file(s)) and the javascript (the .js file(s), including instances where you've used the .js in your own dynamic pages) need to be updated. if you are looking to replace an expired security certificate, and are therefore moving from an earlier version UnlimitedFTP (2.8.5 for example) to the latest (2.9 in this case), this article is for also for you. 1. Before moving forward: --a) do a backup of any and all directories contain...
The situation: You are deploying the applet to an HTTPS (secure) page. You have embedded one of the applets in your page, but when you browse to the page you are given the warning "This page contains some non-secure items. Click OK to proceed." To the best of your knowledge, no other elements on the page are non-secure. You may have even created a bare-bones page only to discover that the applet itself seems to be the source of the warning. The solution: At render time, a bit of a drill-down o...
Some of our applets use images/icons to represent actions (help, download, begin transfer) or filesystem elements (folders, files, up-level navigation). These are included and visible in the .jar container. However, although one might be able to see them or replace them, any modifications will cause the applet to fail to load. The applet expects to see particular images, and when it does not, there will be "exceptions" thrown (there will be errors). We are committed to providing our clients wi...
When a user loads a page containing an Unlimi-Tech applet (UFTP, U-Upload, etc), they are presented with a security advisory and are asked if they wish to trust or refuse the signing certificate. In some cases, users aren't quite sure what to do and will cancel or select "Don't Allow". The problem is that their choice is typically stored and then retrieved next time they visit the page, meaning that when they realize they needed to trust the certificate, and go back to try again, they are unab...
** The latest versions of all our applets have fixed the following issue. If you do not need to maintain your old javascript configuration, the best option is to simply download and install the new version and configure the applet from scratch. If you have a very recent version but still see the MRJ issue, you can follow solution #1. If you are updating an older version or are not sure what you need to change, follow solution #2. Solution #1 - Quick javascript update: a) open your ______.js ...
Every applet is distributed with a javascript file to aid in setting up the applet parameters. If you want to dynamically set the parameters of the applet, the easiest way to do so is to first copy and paste the contents of the .js file directly into your HTML file. Now, depending on your server side technology, ASP, JSP, PHP, etc., you need only replace the javascript variables with scriptlets. Here is an example with JSP: <% String username = "anonymous"; String password = "uftp@nlimitedf...

For special characters in the language files you have to use Unicode codes in the Java format. In Java, Unicode is represented with u followed by a code number so for example French é code is 00E9. So the Unicode representation is: u00E9. Here is a link to an online converter: http://www.snible.org/java2/uni2java.html And here is a link to the Unicode character tables: http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode5.2.0/ In Czech, the phrase "Username or password incorrect" translates to "U...

OVERVIEW Apple has tightened security for using Java applets by blocking access to the local file system. When applets are launched from the Safari Browser, they will need to access the local file system and this has been identified as a security risk for some users using Mac OSX. For applets to run, the listing that is returned by the file system needs to be accessible to the applet that requests it. When applets that need to access the file system are launched, they will only list files that...

OVERVIEW Google has made changes in the default settings of Chrome version 42, released April 14th, 2015, that block Java applets from running in that browser.
