I am running: Mac OSX 10.4.10 Firefox 18.104.22.168 Java J2SE 5.0 and run updater every week. I've been on a mac for awhile, but about 2 months ago I suddenly started to java problems with certain websites not loading fully. Seems that sites like google maps, when entering and address, the page continues to say "loading", but never loads. I have found that true with other pages as well, portions where there should be pictures, don't load. I believe this is a java issue, as I have tried opening one website in IE and got : java.lang.NoclassDeffoundError Also when running applet launcher I get the same response. Can anyone help?
