the switch can not be accessed by browser when we do upgrade twice, first from v7.4.0a to v8.0.2c, second from v8.0.2c to v8.1.0b.Both http and https are not working.But I can login the CLI normally and make configuration.

Check the FOS 8.x release notes and also the FOS 8.x WebTools admin guide for the correct JAVA console. You may need to upgrade your JAVA console for the new firmware to operate smoothly, or operate at all. You may also need to enable TLS ver 1.2 for the management server. There are cases where the browser cannot decide which JAVA console to use, so it might be best to remove all JAVA versions, then install the one specified in the FOS release notes.

Telnet? Port 80 is for http protocol, and 443 is for SSL(https) protocol. I understand you are using "telnet 192.168.1.1 80" to specify port 80 for your telnet session.
If this is the case, you may have to disable SSL 3.0 option in your browser options. Firefox follow instructions here:
If you are unable to launch WebTools from port 80(http), and you are sure that port 80 is open, yes you should review the JAVA JRE.
Here is the location of the document for WebTools, and also the command reference.

Hover over the "Support" across the spash page, and you will see "Self Service" options list to the left appear.
Under "self service" you will see a link for "Document Library", click on link, the Document library page will open.
Click on the button "Operating Systems", or in the Quick search box, enter; "Fabric OS", the FOS listing will open.
The Release Version drop down should be 8.1.0, if not click it and select 8.1.0.
The list of FOS documents will be displayed below. You can click on the html version, or download the document in PDF form.
For release notes, you will go to: >My.brocade.com > Support >Drivers and Software downloads >browse to "All Operating systems" > select Fabric OS > Ver 8.0 or 8.1 > Select the 8.x.xGA link, and finally the software and the release notes will be available to download.

since you able to telnet to port 80, the http is working and enabled. Since telnet to 443 (https) does not work, it means that the https is not enabled on the switch (nothing with your browser).
Can you share some information the error you are getting with using http?
Notice that do bypass the java check can you use the following - from the browser use the following syntax to bypass the Java version check when lauching webtools
The first time you try, the small window pops up asking if I want to do this for all files of this type (JNLP). (See attached image)
• Select "Open with Java Web Start Launcher"
• Check-mark the box next to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"
The rest of the switches will now open Switch Explorer without the prompt.
I then manually created bookmarks for each of my switches. Problem solved.
From the command line you can get html file / from apache via (try at least) (if authentication settings)
wget --http-user=admin --http-password=<password> http://<switchip>/switch.html

I currently present the same problem, but none of the solutions that I have worked has worked, the system still does not allow the https connections. I disable SSL v3 and try to login with http://<switchip>/switchExplorer_installed.html but it just does not work. for the help thank you very much.
