Java browsing issues

In multiple browsers, when I attempt to visit websites that require Java, I get an error that I must “Enable Javascript”. Javascript is enabled in all of my browsers, but I get the error in Safari, Firefox, and Brave.

Does Java or Javascript need to be manually installed? How do I know if I even have Java/Javascript installed? I have no indication that either is installed.


Java, yes.

Many consider Java in a browser as a security risk and we banned it at my company many years ago. However, you can find everything you need at

Hate to be That Guy™ but Java and Javascript are two completely different things, don’t get them mixed up. If you’re getting an “Enable Javascript” error installing Java won’t help.

Might be helpful if you link a website that gives this error/screenshot of the error.
