Hi, I'm facing issues with my Fedora22. 32 1- tried to update Java as a pop message showed up a week ago, later on everything stopped working properly and I don't even find Java in my plugins in firefox. 2- youtube doesn't work, black screen all the time, I have tried html5 and everything around here on internet but still doesn't work.

Java is to JavaScript what Car is to carpet. Java ships with JavaScript. Cars ship with carpets. You can't run Java in JavaScript, and you can't run a Car in a carpet; neither statement even makes sense. I suggest you change the title to "enable java browser plugin".

From what you wrote, it seems more that by clicking on the popup message you have been infected (script...). You can run an antivirus from a live-usb-key. Some ISOs will much more fit with your computer (bios/efi, file system, luks...). For example :

  • bitdefender, no luks support and not possible to install packages, bios/efi support.
  • kaspersky, not easy to run it.
  • or esets, allows to install packages, legacy bios but with mbr and gpt supports.

Let me know if you need a guideline to configure luks with esets.

Then, you can reinstall firefox and the java packages : sudo dnf reinstall firefox java-1.8.0-openjdk java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel javapackages-tools java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless icedtea-web The last one is the Java plug-in for Firefox.

@yolo: Will that live rescue disk check for viruses in linux machines?

@anishjp : I confirm, it should do the trick on Linux and Windows systems. After that depends on your machine's configuration. I added some more info into my answer.
