This usually happens when there is no java support on your client. You need to install Java on your client.

I bumped also into this one. The reason is that there is some incompatibility between Chrome/Firefox and the latest version of java (7u11). There is a lot of discussions on this topic in various forums.

I solved it by downgrading to java6u38 - (32bit for Chrome), which can be found
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual_v6.jsp

and tell chrome it should not notify to update the plugin by adding --allow-outdated-plugin
to the command line as detailed out here

Note that given the latest security vulnerabilities found in java, it is not recommended to fix it this way, as your vulnerable, but being between a rock and a hard place, I choose for the first. Attach screenshot is essential for us.
