java seems not to work - how to enable?

ciao ragazzi!

winfuture.de is listed in my whitelist but still those pop-ups dont open. also videos dont play as for example http://winfuture.de/news,46296.html

java seems to be unabled for the website. installing the standalone from sun didnt help either. what do i need to set up to make it working?

btw an option called "temporay disable nocscript for this website" would be nice :)

thx for the great program!

Does winfuture require Java at all?
Is Java enabled in the browser itself, it has to be?

The movie looks to be Flash.

Just to point out ...

JavaScript is not Java.
I have not known Java to be needed to play Flash. (This is not to say that it might not be the case.)
Sometimes (generally perhaps more then not) JavaScript does need to be enabled before Flash will play.

(Obviously Flash needs to be installed & not blocked.)

On winfuture.de, I get no "placeholder" (& that may only be me?) so if you had not mentioned, I would not necessarily be aware that there is a Flash movie at all. Now I do see, "FUEL - Trailer", so if I suspected something, that could be a hint. That being the case, I (seemingly) have to allow winfuture.de before anything relating to Flash shows, so can't say otherwise if JavaScript is needed in this case to allow the Flash to play.

I went there and allowed also seitzeichen.de. (Also whitelisted site in AdBlocK Original.) I then clicked the placeholder, received the prompt, clicked "OK", und spielt sehr gut.

Or click the NS menu, point to the green "Blocked Objects" list, and allow *@http.winfuture.de. This eliminates the need to click individual placeholders if you wish for all videos to be able to load.

Does this fix the problem for you?

Auf wiedersehen!

Edit: This was with Java disabled (not JavaScript, as therube points out). I wish that Sun Microsystems had never licensed the Java name to Netscape to create the name "JavaScript", and by now, I bet Sun wishes they hadn't, either. Endless confusion.
