October 12 2018 - Issues with Java in Safari 12 (Mac OSX)
We have refined the process of downloading and opening JNLP Java Live Ticker files. When you go to launch the live ticker, you'll now be able to select a Permanent Web Start file. Downloading this file enables you to launch the Live Ticker without logging in to our website:
  • Go to launch the ticker and select "Permanent Web Start."
  • Once you have that download, open the downloads folder and find the file.
  • Hold down the control key and click on the file, and then select open (any other way of doing this will not allow you to open the file due to security settings).
  • Open the file, run the ticker and then you should have the java ticker back up and running.
This file can be retained and renamed to whatever you want. You only need to hold the control key to open it the first time and then after that it should always work. The file can also be moved to the desktop for quicker access. You'll need to enter in your login ID and Password each time you launch the ticker.

You'll also be able to change portfolios inside the ticker from the stocks menu.
