On startup a windows popup is shown with the message: "Java Plugin for Netscape Navigator should not be used in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Please use Java Plugin for Microsoft Internet Explorer instead." This has never occurred before with previous builds (including 1.3b in the short time I tested it before the crash bug made it unusable). I uninstalled the Java plugin, which of course stopped the problem, and then reinstalled the latest jre from Java - 1.4.1_02, and the problem is back. Note that IE was not running at all during testing, and cancelling the message allowed me to use Mozilla as usual. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start mozilla. 2. 3. Actual Results: Popup complains that the netscape java plugin should not be used for IE. Expected Results: No popup. Using the Modern Theme, and problem occurred before any XPI's were installed.
not sure you can decide to put that bug blocking1.3, especially when not yet confirmed...
Just following Asa's instructions on http://www.mozillazine.org/articles/article2959.html Just seen that another candidate has been released - will download and test this evening.
You should check your prefs.js and user.js to see if you have altered your useragent setting to anything containing IE. That's what produced this message for me in the past. Starting with a fresh profile would also fix such a problem, I think.
A quick way to find out the current UA string is Help -> About Mozilla.
Reporter, please don't set the blocking flag directly. See the guidelines under http://www.mozillazine.org/articles/article2779.html for more information. Note: I can't change it.
Apologies. Have reset to ?. Will look for the UA spoofing string in user.js and prefs.js ASAP. Flag should probably be set to - by someone who has permission..
Flags: blocking1.3+ → blocking1.3?
