Thanks, Larry. That’s interesting to know. I do have Java 6 also installed (along with 8,
update 31), and have not had issues, as mentioned, with my 10.10.3 (not 10.3.3, as I had mistyped).

Until a fix is put in, can I suggest that we put the sentence you wrote above in an FAQ and
in the panel on Java in the preferences?
