Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Unable to launch JBidwatcher 2.5.3pre4 on Mac

I’m running 10.8.4 with Java 7 update 25 which was the latest.

Have you updated your Java to the latest version?

Apple pushed out a disable for the Java versions that had vulnerabilities. The latest versions have higher security settings by default that must be reduced to execute third party java based software.

Not having a 10.6.8 machine laying around anymore, I can’t give much more info?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Unable to launch JBidwatcher 2.5.3pre4 on Mac

I found the solution, the problem on mac os X is Java, everything was looking like a Java issue, and it is. Apple pushed Java disables when the Java exploit was floating around which increased security around Java running

Go to your Java System Preference, the security Tab, and lower the security to Medium, then relaunch Jbid and the configuration window will load properly.

Hopefully this works for all of you too.

BTW Pre 4 still has issues with other windows and loading, but those seem to be related to code and not the Java

Comment Topic: General Sniping Discussion / Ebay seems to be forcing a captcha :-(

Is anyone else not able to log in with Jbid? Ebay seems to force a Captcha every time I login and JBid says ebay security monitoring has been triggered. I login normally on ebay but it still prompts?

Don’t know how to work around this?

Any help?

ok, after re-reading the error message for the thousandth time, I noticed a captcha reference.

so I removed all cookies from the browser and ebay finally prompted for a captcha when logging in and after following the instructions, jbid jumped to life!!!!!

I’m getting the following errors

Sun Oct 21 11:39:24 EDT 2007: Getting the sign in cookie. [podlasek@ebay: 21-Oct-2007 11:39:24 EDT/21-Oct-2007 11:39:24 EDT]
Sun Oct 21 11:39:28 EDT 2007: eBay’s security monitoring has been triggered, and temporarily requires human intervention to log in.

So right now nothing is working, any ideas?

I can login fine to ebay but nothing have no idea how to login manually through Jbid?

also, what does Security monitoring mean?

eBay’s security monitoring has been triggered, and temporarily requires human intervention to log in.

Any Help??

now it has stopped logging in completely. I love the app, but it is not working at all. I’ve even deleted the whole .jbidwatcher directory and the app and reinstalled and it still won’t function properly

I’m using Mac OS X 10.4.10

HELP!

Anyone have any ideas???
