General Information

This issue only affects some 3rd party extensions in Joomla! versions 3.1.4 and higher

Typical error message

Fatal error: Class 'JBrowser' not found in path/to/file.php on line XY

Afected versions

After update to Joomla 3.1.4, some some extensions that depend on the native autoloader , with a working code before, may stop working.


While this is not resolved, change the source code from something similar to this

$browser = JBrowser::getInstance();

To this (with legacy way to load classes)

JLoader::import('joomla.environment.browser') // Add this linecode
$browser = JBrowser::getInstance();
