I am having Sound Message Issues, No Alert Sound that there is a Message that came in,

so this and when I am chatting the sound does not work, I checked the options and the
Play sound for new messages is on, . .

So I checked my Java update and I have Java 22 Firefox version 3.6.15
I went to Java updates and the Update is 24, . . Should I update ?


Also I did not download the plug in that FB signals at times during Chat use.

I am believing that it is a QuickTime plugin

I did try the Quicktime Alternative and could not get any results I uninstalled it.

Can you tell me do I need the Java 24 and should I D/L QkTm ?

Yes, you should always update Java to prevent malware exploits. Since you missed the Update 23 you will
need to go to Add/ Remove programs and uninstall update 22 after installing 24.

Assuming you are asking about Facebook Chat, there is a help page to assist you in
deciding which chat client and how to install each chat client.

If you have other older versions of Java, delete them, too. Delete all versions except the latest....24.

OK I have installed Java Thanks !

But I am still not getting the message signal sound when I get a message, I downloaded Quictime, that took hrs, still nothing, it bothered me a little and I un-installed it,
I have skpe and some other instant messengers software's, I am going to search for and un-install next, before un-installing Skype which will be my last un-install since I am using it.

But if you have any ideas, please, . . let me know .

I visited that page and was not able to see or find anything that will clearly solve this, and from what help I received from FB, they said there still working on it.

Personally, I think an individual that has amassed a 50 billion dollar fortune of profit,

would be happy to develop a software for its customer clients and users, . . that would detect the type of browser they are using and scan the variety of software variable's that would enable the problem to be solved.

Which goes to show one, that there probably is a profit motive to the negligence this
internet company dishes out to its users.

What addons do you have in Firefox?

Have you used IE browser to see if the no alert sound problem occurs there, too?

Which chat program(s) do you want to use? Which one are you using?

Some things I cannot check because I don't have a Facebook account.
