I'm using Mint 13 and Firefox 17.0.1.
Google Drive has a "folder upload" option for which Chrome is compatible as-is. Firefox, accoring to Google's instructions, requires a Java applet. When I try to enable the folder upload option, a dialog box opens offering the choice of either downloading Chrome or installing the applet. I selected "install applet".
I clicked on "install applet" and got a message indicating it installed successfully... but the applet didn't open and I have not found a way to activate and use it.
Anyone have any idea on how this is supposed to work or why it doesn't?
