Hello,

Does anyone recognize the following box or even the blue logo?

As a short term fix you are probably going to need to add the URL of the Crossword site to your exceptions list.  The latest iterations of Java are enforcing more stringent security settings.

Your site hasn't caught up with the changes they need for Java to whitelist the page.
