M-Files Web and Java

M-Files Web uses an M-Files Java applet for facilitating file access operations. However, with the updates in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and updates in new browsers, the applet may not work without some manual changes, for instance, to Java security settings.
Follow the steps described below for resolving the Java issue in a browser without restrictions in Java use.

We recommend using 32-bit Java. The guidelines below are for 32-bit Java.
If this did not bring the M-Files Web functionality back, follow these instructions:
NOTE: Safari no longer supports Java applets since version 12. Read more about this here: https://java.com/en/download/help/enable_browser.xml
If this did not help, follow the steps further above described for Windows. In OS X, you can find the Java settings via System Preferences > Java.
Adding Site Exceptions

The easiest and correct way to fix this is to add a security exception to the "Exception Site List" in the Java settings:
Once you have finished adding the exceptions, it is still good idea to restore the security prompts:
After closing and opening the browser again, these settings should be effective. The last thing to do is to re-enable Java for M-Files Web.
