Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to connect a VPN connection (on Mac OS X 10.6.6) through a Check point java applet. The first time it ran I chose NOT to give it access to my files and such and now every time I try to lunch the applet it tells me too

"Please confirm the use of this Java applet and then refresh or reopen the window."

But I don't know how to confirm it nor delete the applet.

How can I change the permissions afterwards and where can I find java applets installed on my computer?

Update: This turns out to be a problem in Firefox. Cleared cookies, Java cache and certificate in Safari and it seems to work.

This should probably be migrated to superuser, as it's an end-user support question not software development... –  bdonlan Mar 5 '11 at 18:45
    
I don't really know what that means but migrate away! ...or in case I have to do it, how do I? –  Karl Jóhann Mar 5 '11 at 22:29
    
@Karl, you wouldn't be able to migrate it on your own - I've flagged it for a moderator (or if 5 high-rep users vote on it it can be triggered that way too) –  bdonlan Mar 6 '11 at 7:26

Here is a page I wrote about defensive loading of trusted applets. The sandbox.html linked from that page has some tips intended for the end user who initially refuses trust to an applet but then reconsiders. I am not sure if it will work for Mac.

Thanks for the help, I at least learned something new. I tried clearing the session and the java cache but it still doesn't ask me. This is very strange. –  Karl Jóhann Mar 6 '11 at 8:55
    
@Andrew: Your page contains a working example, but no indication on how to do this. Could you add this, or explain a bit? –  Paŭlo Ebermann Mar 6 '11 at 14:20
