From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.7+)
BuildID:    20020102

I have an applet that calls a jsp using a HTTP POST instead of traditional HTTP
GET. Also have a JavaScript that connects to the
Applet and then passes information to send using the HTTP POST.

The received data is pre processed on the applet and then is passed
back to the script.

This was working quite well on previous versions of Mozilla <= 0.9.6 and MS
Internet Explorer >= 5, now all i get is:

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission
shadow resolve)

at java.security.AccessControlContext.checkPermission(Unknown Source)
at java.security.AccessController.checkPermission(Unknown Source)

at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
at sun.plugin.liveconnect.SecureInvocation.CallMethod(Unknown Source)

NOTE: shadow is the name of my local computer.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open mozilla
2. goto url: http://shadow/www/index.jsp
3. click on "Ok" button to call my javascript to connect to applet

Actual Results:  on the java plug-in window, i get an exception on browser,
nothing happens

Expected Results:  run the applet as in previous versions

my applet tag is:

<applet name="jrsproxy" code="JRSProxy.class" width="0" height="0" MAYSCRIPT
codebase="/www/applets" cabbase="Applets.cab"></applet>

Looks very similar to bug 113122:

"When I am trying to make a connecton to an URL the following error occurs
Error: uncaught exception: java.security.PrivilegedActionException"

I think i've found some solution for this bug.

1st, uninstall java plug-in.
2nd, download SUN's Java Plug-in 1.3.1_02-win_i and installed it.
3rd, replace all the DLL's from the default java plug-in by the
ones provided from SUN's Java Plug-in. And now it works fine!
