Updating a mac g3
Simply put, you can have multiple versions of Java in different places.
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.
The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all.
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.Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working.Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available." I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it.
For Safari, enable the Develop Window and use an option in there that works. [crarko adds: I don't have an older system active at the moment to try this.
