Bug Description

When trying to run Java applets on Google Chrome (for example, ), I get the following message: "IcedTea was blocked because it is out of date. [Run this time] [Update plug-in...]"

Clicking [Update plug-in...] takes me to and doesn't update it.

Clicking [Run this time] gives the message "Could not load IcedTea-Web Plugin (using IcedTea-Web 1.2 (1.2-2ubuntu1.1))." and the applet refuses to run. I also get the following if I ran chrome from the command line:

/build/buildd/icedtea-web-1.2/build/../plugin/icedteanp/ thread 0x7fe984710500: Error: Invalid plugin function table.
/build/buildd/icedtea-web-1.2/build/../plugin/icedteanp/ thread 0x7fe984710500: Error: Invalid plugin function table.
[] PluginMsg_Init returned false
[] Couldn't initialize plug-in

- Chrome is Version 21.0.1180.75.
- Java applets do work on Firefox.
