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.

where can I find the opal plugin?
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. anthonyd

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.
