With the most recent versions of Firefox for Windows (v 24.0) or Chrome browser (Version 30.0.1599.101 m), and Java Standard Edition (v 7 update 45), I get a dire security warning whenever I run a new WebMO function. For example clicking the View icon on a job brings up a warning about net.webmo.applet.EditorApplication ("This application will be blocked in a future Java security update because the JAR file manifest does not contain the Permissions attribute..."). How can install Java in a way that avoids this message? I just click through it, but some users now seem to think the whole WebMO site is infected with viruses.

Basically, there is no immediate (or user-fixable) solution to this problem. This is due to announced changes in Java implemented by Oracle in a 'minor' patch.
We are working on a resolution in next month or so, but there is no immediate work around. Thankfully, (1) WebMO still works fine after acknowledging the warning; (2) the warning occurs only once per session (not on every page)

Any ETA on an update to the editor? Presumably all that is required is that the jar file(s) be signed with a certificate signed by a commercial signing authority, rather than the current self-signed cert....

Working on it, but getting a cert is a bit involved.
