Amos beat me to the chase, and I think he’s on the money.  Chrome is phasing 
our NPAPI plugins (Java, Flash and a bunch of others) and I understand Firefox 
is going the same way too, albeit on a slightly different schedule:

I got bitten on the arse with Java in Chrome (thanks Oracle, IBM and other 
dinosaurs…you suck!) so I still have to fire up Firefox until they too drop 
support, then I’m royally screwed.  We have a very finite mix of browsers and 
Java versions that work with our “enterprise” data warehouse - Java 6u45 and 
that’s it.  Yep, one version works, all others fail in subtle and/or 
spectacular ways at different points. Yay.

Good luck.
