Is there a workaround to get Java games to open?

I am running Jave V8 191 – today no Java games will open

The message is:
For security, applications must now meet the requirements for the High or VeryHIgh Security settings, or be part of the Exception Site List, to be allowed to run.

This is happening on every browser I run Java on, Firefox ESR, Seamonkey, and Aviator. It is happening on each machine I own.

Is there a work around?

    I’m running Java 8.201 and not having any problem on Internet Explorer. That’s the only browser that I have that supports Java.

    Good Luck!

    All I did was went into Java, restored the security prompts, then told Java to always allow Pogo.

    I haven’t had any problems since then with Pale Moon.

    From the forums…

    The Electronic Arts Certificate has expired, so Oracle has blocked Java. Until EA renews it, you will get that message.

    You have to add the following URL addresses in the Exception List on the security tab in Java, according to EA yesterday to me.

    Well, I have added those to my exception list, but its still not letting me into any Java games.
    Anyone have any more suggestions?
    Thanks, lewie2011

    Clear your Cashe, also you can go to the trouble shooting page in Java, and they also have information regarding troubleshooting between Java and Pogo. I’ve heard that you need to allow your browser for Java. Make sure you are playing on IE11. Java won’t work on Chrome or Firefox. You may need to hit apply then ok, when adding the URL’s to the Exception List. Good Luck

    Also, make sure you update your Java. The security levels have changed. I believe mine was updated to Java 8.201. Also it is suggested in the Java Advanced Security tab, you should check the boxes for enable – show warnings, and also the box for SSL 3.0. Hope this helps.
