From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT; Computer Associates 
International v1.52)
BuildID:    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010726 
Netscape6/6.1

The Opal plug-in used to can be loaded by Nescape 4.7xx.But if we use netscape 
6.1, it won't load the plugin even we drop the plugin dll into the 
Netscape/Plugins directory. When I debug the code, I found the Nescape only 
calls NP_Initialize and NPP_NEW, it doesn't call NPP_NewStream anymore. I want 
to know if there is a API incompatibility problem in NetScape 6.1.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.In stall Opal player and plugin
2.Drop the plugin dll into netscape\plugins directory.
3.Load a Opal project. It fails

I can provide the Opal player install and project for reproducing.


Actual Results:  Loading fails

Expected Results:  Loading succeeds.
Reporter: Is this a problem with mozilla 0.9.9 or later ?

I downloaded the 2.12 installer formt he official site.

The installer did NOT recognize 6.x being installed.  I selected 4.77 and
continued with the installation.  After the installation was complete, I copied
the file (npopal32.dll) to my 6.2.1+ build plugins directory.  I then restarted
mozilla and went to the following page to bring up an opal window:
http://www.usmsc.edu/opal/Bowie/Bowie_web/publish/BOA_opal.htm

Here is the strange part, the first time I went to this page AFTER dropping the
opal plugin in the plugins directory, I got the default plugin.  As I clicked on
the default plugin, the opal window with all of the relevant opal informaiton
popped up.  I then restarted mozilla again and went to the above mentioned page
and I no longer got the default plugin, and everything seemd to be working
correctly.

Again this is on win2k with version 2.12 running netscape 6.2.1+.

marking bug WORKSFORME.

tony, u experienced the correct behaviour. After copying over the plugin to 
mozilla, unless a manual plugin refresh is done, the default plugin will come 
up. So doing either "about:plugins" or restarting mozilla updates the plugin 
list. marking verif.
