Yep. You have to uncheck "Forbid Java" in Plugins in order to see the Java applet (d'oh! -- not you, therube, just d'oh, you have to unforbid Java for a Java applet to run). The "dancing Duke" logo is a Java Applet. Unless you uncheck "Forbid Java", or uncheck "Apply... to trusted sites too", with Java.com in your whitelist, no applet, no Dancing Duke.
Yes, very much like Flash. I can have YouTube whitelisted, but Flash blocked. When I want to see a certain video, just click/allow that placeholder *only*. Same idea.
I used to use Java for online poker (play money), and some Yahoo games, e. g., TextTwist. Only use now is for Hushmail
, which is the only sensible way to send anything remotely sensitive through email if you're not a PGP or GPG-monkey. So Java stays forbidden. Used to have to uncheck it at Hushmail, but recently, I can just use that same "TA Blocked Object" that we talked about re: Yahoo Mail Attachments, and not have to remember to re-check "Forbid Java" when done.
