Error updating firmware 7 5 2 to extreme

What was happening on the not-working Macs was that the jdk versions were being used, and the Juniper vpn client won't work with them.
I think the actual hint here is a reminder that if a site misbehaves, changing the user agent can be an effective troubleshooting tool.] Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. There is this nifty free app called Lin Castor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL.
Although it had beed designed to register your own non-standard URL schemes, it can intercept standard http and https as well.
I'd be curious to know from Mac OSXHints users whether they are experiencing this problem in the first place and if the workaround works for you, too.

[crarko adds: I believe Oracle has said that eventually Java will no longer support applets at all, on any platform.] A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri.That's why I call it a workaround instead of a fix.I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.To fix things for the moment I simply removed the jdk folders.And then checked that the reported version of Java was 1.6 on each Mac.
