Imap folders updating cached headers
Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working.
Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available." I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it.
Web applets still use the up to date, secure version 1.7 plugin.
[crarko adds: I believe Oracle has said that eventually Java will no longer support applets at all, on any platform.] A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri.
I wonder if something is going on at Apple's end, where the Siri processing gets done.
Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection. I made sure that the Safari and Java preferences were set the same on each machine but still no joy.I think the actual hint here is a reminder that if a site misbehaves, changing the user agent can be an effective troubleshooting tool.] Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. There is this nifty free app called Lin Castor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL.Although it had beed designed to register your own non-standard URL schemes, it can intercept standard http and https as well.We respect its storied history, and value the contributions of its many readers, but we can no longer support it at the level it deserves.Theres a wealth of great information here that many will find useful, so we've elected to maintain it in a read-only form.
To fix things for the moment I simply removed the jdk folders.
