UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/28.0.1485.0 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Try to use a site with a Java applet in Chrome 28.0.1485.0 dev 
One such page:

What is the expected behavior?
Java may ask for permission to run, but should work.

What went wrong?
First was told that plugin is not up-to-date "Java(TM) was blocked because it is out of date". This is the most recent version of the Java plugin, as far as I know.

Then after clicking "Run this time" got the message "Java Plug-in 1.7.0_21 has crashed" on the first attempt to load a page with an applet. On the second and following attempt (before a browser restart) got "Could not load Java Plug-in 1.7.0_21".

Did this work before? Yes With google-chrome-unstable_27.0.1453.6-r191032_amd64.deb

Chrome version: 28.0.1485.0  Channel: dev
OS Version: Debian squeeze (stable)

Tested the same on Ubuntu 12.04 using 28.0.1485.0 (Official Build 195393). Unable to repro this issue. By opening URL "Java(TM) is required to display some elements on this page" info bar is displayed and attached the screenshot of the same.

@taniwallach: Could please provide screenshot/screen-cast of the error.

I get the exact issue. True java has always been an issue with Ubuntu. I *must* have it for school. Usually ppa:webupd8team/java allows this to work. However, even this doesn't fix the issue for 13.04. His errors perfectly describe the issue. I have tries the fix ln-s "location of" etc. Nothing works. I have no idea. Java works with Firefox, but only after the ppa:webupd8team/java install. However, I so hate using two browsers. My world is wrapped up in chrome, and I would like to figure this one out. What can I do?
I have the exact same issue in Ubuntu 13.04 running Chrome version 28.0.1485.0 dev.

I have the same issue as #3.

I am running Slackware64-current with jre-7u21-x86_64-1 and Chrome/Chromium Version 28.0.1501.0.

I have been having this issue for some time now, although I can't remember since which version of chrome(ium). But it's been bugging me for more than 2 weeks already (been updating the browser version each week).

Chromium Version 29.0.1502.0 custom (198873) keeps the issue flowing ;)

rponnada: It seems the Java plug-in is missing on the testing machine. Can you reproduce it with Java installed?, can you elaborate on the "ln-s 'location of'" fix? Where did that come from?

This issue is not reproducible on Windows 8 ,Chrome Version:28.0.1501.0(Official Build 198794) canary.

After installing the plug in,clicked on "Run this time",it worked fine.
THis actually appears to be a java problem, not a chrome problem

I have the same issue on ubuntu 13.04 + Version 28.0.1500.20 beta. 
Anybody have a workaround for this?

vboya@, the issue happens on Linux, as stated in the initial report.
I suspect this is a regression caused by r193855 and fixed in r199158. If that's the case, it should be fixed in the latest dev channel (29.0.1516 and newer). Could someone who experiences this issue test that?
I can confirm, this now works for "Google Chrome 29.0.1516.3 (Official Build 201887) dev".

Thanks! So, this is indeed a regression.

TPMs, I'd like to merge r199158 (a tiny fix) to the M28 branch.
Is this a duplicate of:  bug 137388 ?

Sort of, but I'd like to keep  issue 137388  for the out-of-date bug, and this one for the startup crash.
