Okay, so I made sure that my Java was more up-to-date than the version number required by the page; I updated it further, anyway. 

And, the Java applet in the greyed-out window still did not work; in either Chromium or Firefox.

I'm using a Debian squeeze (stable) system, had to install jdk-7u3-linux-x64.tar.gz from oracle using these instructions:

and got it working eventually.

(Thanks crazysquirrel for sane instructions for Debian systems.)
