I'm on Win98SE, using Mozilla today's trunk build, with new Sun Java 1.4.2 beta installed. We may need to update Mozilla to get it working with this new version. the java plugins are listed in the "about plugins" dialog, but5 java applets never load. Steps: - Install new java JRE 1.4.2 beta from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html - Go to http://www.bdbiosciences.com/spectra/ or another web site requiring java - See the result
Please read the component description, thanks

uninstall your older jre and reinstall the latest one.
About comment #1, sorry, didn't know about OJI component before, I will remember that one for sure. About comment #2, this is exactly what I did. I uninstalled the old JRE and installed the new one. Should I try uninstall and re-install again?
Confirming this bug here too with 2003040308 / XP. In fact, it's even more serious - although I'm not raising the severity since there are no actual crashes or dataloss here. Ever since installing J2SE 1.4.2 beta, both Mozilla and Phoenix on my system have been completely buggered. Even after removing it and going back to 1.4.1_02, neither browser acknowledges that I have Java installed. Meanwhile, IE works just fine. I'm still trying to figure out how to get Mozilla/Phoenix working again so that they recognize I have Java. (I'll probably remove them, wipe out all file traces, reinstall, and copy the plugins back again.)
Thanks for your input Jason. Unfortunately, I have uninstalled IE here at home and won't reinstall it, so I can't test it on my machine, but it works at my job, on a computer (W2K) with IE and without Mozilla. Also, clearing my cache and starting a new profile didn't work either. I really don't know what more to try. I wonder if anybody else have this problem, or am I the only one? can anyone test and confirm?
I am using Mozilla 1.3 final on Windows 2000 and I can confirm this bug. I installed JDK 1.4.2 beta parallel to 1.4.1 (the last installed JRE becomes the default JRE) and then I had no Java anymore in Mozilla ("missing plugin"). Copying NPOJI610.dll from 1.4.2 to the plugins directory did not help, but copying NPOJI610.dll from 1.4.1 did it. Now I have Java again in Mozilla. Seems that Mozilla really has a problem with JDK 1.4.2.
go to ControlPanel->Java Plugin->Browser, check mozilla1.1 or later on, you must set this option on or java don't work
joshua: small question: What changed after 1.1 that there is a special pref for that ?
There is unchange on Mozilla side. It is change on Java Plugin side (installer and configuration)
The problem with that plugin option in the control panel is, that it does not find Mozilla on my system and says "Unable ti change Browser settings". Maybe, because I have installed Mozilla by unzipping and not with the Installer.
Yes, same for me, I use zip mozilla builds, and I get the same error message. I clicked OK on the dialog box with the error message, and clicked Apply again. I thought I had set it right as the Apply button grayed out after that second click, but closing and re-opening the Java control panel and the Mozilla 1.1 and later setting is still deselected. As per comment #15, this isn't really a mozilla issue because the change is on the Java plugin side (and it is still beta), so I am tempted to INVALID this bug. Any objections?. (Also corrected typos in the summary)
Summary: Java does nnot work with net suin Java JRE 1.4.2 beta → Java does not work with net sun Java JRE 1.4.2 beta

I also encoutered Martin's problem. I installed JRE 1.4.2 beta in my computer, and downloaded talkback-enabled Mozilla 1.4 RC2 zip file. After I unzipped the mozilla 1.4 and launched it, I found that the Java could not be loaded when visiting the Java-required websites. After I unstalled JRE 1.4.2 beta and installed JRE 1.4.1_02, Java works. There must be some bug with the compatibility between mozilla 1.4 RC2 and JRE 1.4.2.
Did you enable Java to support mozilla? set on Java Control Panel.
Joshua, please see Comment #16.
Thomas Boerkel is right. I encountered the same problem with the Java Plug-in in the Control Panel as is mentioned in Comment #16.
ControlPanel->Java Plugin->Browser->mozilla1.1 By changing a registry, I was able to use this function. ------------------------------------------------------------ Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla] "CurrentVersion"="1.4rc2" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla\1.4rc2\Main] "Install Directory"="C:\\Mozilla\\bin\\"
SuSE7.3: I have upgraded to Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.2-b28 File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.2 and it works with MozillaFirebird with libjavaplugin_oji.so out of the ns610-dir. Mozilla RC3 doesn't even start with that one (I know it's the wrong plugin but how about an error message?). /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory? System error?:: Erfolg chris@tux:~> /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/ bash: /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/: is a directory I've tried j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so, Mozilla 1.4RC3 starts but doesn't recognize the plugin.
On Win XP SP 1a its the same with the Java 1.4.2 Final. I have Mozilla Firebird 0.6 running, Java 1.4.1_01 worked fine, after updating to 1.4.2 no more Java support in Firebird. about:plugins states that everything is correct, it lists the 1.4.2 Java plugins. In the Java Control Panel I can't activate it for Mozilla 1.1 or higher as stated in comment #16. On my other computer I got it running. There I have both Mozilla and Firebird running. AFTER updating Mozilla to 1.4 RC3 with installer, Java is running in both Moziall and Firebird. Really strange.
Yes, my guess is that using the installer might create additional registry keys and entries, probably a key similar to that mentioned in comment #23. This key didn'T exist on my system. Unfortunately, adding the key manually didn'T fix the problem. I may try using an installer build for once soon (Not today: I'm moving and my internet will be disconnected in a few minutes, for at least 3 days.)
Manually adding the registry values mentioned in #23 fixed my problems and allowed me to enable MoZilla Support in the Java Control Panel. Martin, are you sure you really set the correct path in the .reg file before importing ? What didn't work after that ? Still the same "mozilla not found" error in the java control panel ? BTW: The Java Control Panel copies it's Java DLLs to the plugin directory in the specified path when activating MoZilla Support. I thought having the Java Plugin DLLs there would be obsolete by now (since it does work without the DLLs in there) ? I really wonder what Sun though of when creating this "browser selection" feature...
You are right, it works now, even with Java 1.4.2 final. I guess I screwed up when I tried first time. It even works after deleting java dll's from the plugins folder as expected. Thanks.
I think this is not an issue anymore, since 1.4.2 final is out and works. At least on Linux and WinXP.

On Win98SE at least, it will only work when applying the registry tweak mentioned in comment #23. It doesn't work "out-of-the-box".
The same (comment #31) applies to Windows 2000.
