From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) BuildID: 2001091903 After I tried to load main page at java.sun.com (and downloading the java plugin for applicaton/x-java-vm from netscape) without success (Mozilla never registered any plugins after installation) I instead downloaded jre 1.3.1_01 from Sun. Installing that package actually made Mozilla register a lot of plugins for java; but the one missing is for the mime type application/x-java-vm! Since that is not registered many sites fail to display properly with the click-here-to-download-plugin link as the only result. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit the site java.sun.com with no plugins installed 2. Install the 1.3.1_01 package from Sun. 3. Visit the site again Actual Results: The link displaying a message that a plug-in is missing occurs both after step 1 and 3. Expected Results: I expected the java applet to be loaded and executed but it could off course be me that have misunderstood something.

Reassign to Joe as I'm leaving the role of OJI module owner.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW

Ressign to Joe Chou, as I am no longer working officially on OJI.
Assignee: edburns → joe.chou
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.5 → mozilla0.9.6
Workaround: Set the value of "plugin.do_JRE_Plugin_Scan" preference to true. This preference forces mozilla to serach for the installed JRE if the java pugin is not found in the bin/plugins folder.
Re-assign to sep.

reporter: please clarify how you check for list of registred mime-types? Did you use Help->About Plugins? Could you please post here output of about:plugins?
Reporter: You don't have Java installed correctly. See the release notes: http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla0.9.6/#java Sepcifically, be sure you have NPOJI600.dll in your plugins directory. This plugin only registers application/x-java-vm and is the key component for Java. If this resolves the problem, please close out this bug. Thanks!
Javaplugin jre1.3.1 contain application/x-java-vm myme type as first element in list of myme types (try Help->About Plug-ins). I do not think jre 1.3.1_01 was bundled without support of this myme type. Moreover, works I tried jre1.4 as well. Same result. Propose to close this bug as invalid.
