Chat? - May 19th 2017, 02:18 AM

Apparently Firefox doesn't support java plug ins anymore which means I cannot get into chat....I know chrome doesn't support it, neither does my edge browser on my windows ten...How am I going to be able to do my staff duties...I will not use internet explorer.

This has already been brought up, and some good points were made in this thread. If you're not willing to use Internet Explorer and can't find another solution, then you may need to look at switching to a staff position that doesn't require you to be in Chat. I for one have started using IE for Chat and it's worked fine for me so far, and it's not that inconvenient.

I can't get in on my laptop because it's a Mac and I can't download internet explorer. If you have the option of downloading interet explorer you should at least give it a chance. Firefox doesn't work with the new update but the link that Chess gave you explains how you can download the previous version (which does work). My iMac however lets me on with firefox because it did not download the newer version.

I can use this link to get on though! It's the mobile version and it works on my macbook.

I definitely suggest checking out the other thread on this issue that Chess linked to. To sum the thread up, there are not currently many options besides downloading the extended support version of Firefox, using an older version of Firefox, mobile Chat, or Internet Explorer. Personally, I will enter Chat from Internet Explorer and then click on the pop-up button which will open Chat in it's own little window instead of being in the main IE tab and then I'll close the main IE window. Then I continue doing what I was over in Firefox or Google Chrome. You can't even really tell it's a different browser, honestly.

In regards to Staff duties, I would message Robin/Dez to see what you can do in your current role(s) without being active in the Chat Room. You could also consider switching primaries, as Chess mentioned. I really suggest you message Robin or Dez about it though because only they can tell you for sure what your options are.

Since there's not really any other solutions beside what was mentioned in the other thread and has been summed up here, I'm going to close this thread. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

“There is nothing beautiful about the wreckage of a human being.
There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.
What is beautiful is their strength, their resilience, their fortitude
as they display an ocean of courage when they pick through the
wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill
