Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open http://sport.onet.pl/live.html Actual Results: Applet fails to load Expected Results: We want to listen.. ;) - spoken on behalf of Sport Fans. Errors from the Console: load: class onet.komentator.Komentator2.class not found. java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: java.io.FileNotFoundException: http://sport.onet.pl/onet/komentator/Komentator2/class.class at sun.net.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection.getInputStream(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin.protocol.jdk12.http.HttpURLConnection.getInputStream(Unknown Source) ...... Comments from our dev team member, Gabriel: Please look at: 1) how code attribute is passed: <applet code=onet.komentator.Komentator2.class height=1 name=TestClient width=1 MAYSCRIPT> Should be either class name: onet.komentator.Komentator2 or Path to it: onet/komentator/Komentator2.class 2) They also use: <param NAME="useslibrarycodebase" VALUE="komentator.cab"> - not sure if and to which extent Java handles .cab files.

Confirming and accepting. Yes, I believe it's one of the reasons you gave (or both). Will investigate.

The result of my investigation: The site uses Microsoft model of signing a Java applet. The signing is necessary if the applet is supposed to leave the Java "sandbox" but signed cab files should be served only to IE browsers. Mozilla (and other browsers using Sun Java plugin) should be served a jar file signed using the Sun signing model. For Sun documentation on signing Jar files, see http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/Books/javaprogramming/JAR/sign/

The same problems occur with chats on onet.pl. They are still using soon-to-be-illegal Microsoft Java...
At the moment instead of trying to load MS Java, that site gives Mozilla's user info: "Attention! Microsoft Internet Explorer ver. 5.0 or better is needed for proper work of this service. Sorry." Jacek: basing on success with bug 219953, meaby it's time for another letter?
I've just added Maciej Maciejowski from Onet as CC on this bug.
FIXED according to http://osiolki.net/poprawiony/liveonet (Osiolki.net is a Polish web standards evangelism team, consisting of Mozilla, Opera and Konqueror/Safari users) The applet now loads properly in Sun Java VM and is said to work ok in Firefox and Opera. It would be nice to check it during real transmissions. They're still saying that "it works best with IE and MS JVM", though.
