I'm having the same problem ...  Have sun-java file installed using 
Synaptic Package Manager.
When I go to my game site,, I can sign in OK, get to the 
main page, the game
page, but when I go to play any of the games, I get the pop up "install 
java now" "yes" "no".
I then check to see if all my exceptions are set, which they are, & test 
according to their
test, which gives me 3 pop up windows.  Third one says I'm good to go.  
Again I try & NO-GO.
Same thing all over.  Took out Firefox3 & put in Firefox2  Still a NO-GO.

What's up folks?  Seems to me sumfin is broke?  I'm still wet behind the 
ears & need leading
by the hand.
