    I can't access my homebanking web site (it uses Safari). When I try to, the web site says I don't have Java Installed (it was working till last week). If I access Java test page, it says Java is working good. If I access my homebanking with Firefox, it runs OK.
    What could be wrong? What shall I do?

    For clarity, do you mean, Java or JavaScript? There's a big distinction. I have a hard time believing a banking web site would use Java.

    Hopefully their message uses the correct terminology, so make sure they actually say Java, rather than JavaScript. Also, you can look at the source code of the page and see if they use any Java Applets. You can also post the site of the bank and I can take a quick look see. It's weird that only Safari has the issue. It could be a bad check on the side of the web site, or maybe you have a plugin installed that has blocked Java, or maybe changed a Preference for Java. The setting is under the Security tab of Safari Preferences.
