The jre-plugin installs and runs fine on the previous two versions of mozilla (1.4b and 1.4rc1 - I still have them on my machine). With 1.4rc2 it seems to install, but can't be applied nor be detected by Help --> Plugins. The plugins directory looks identical to those of 1.4b and 1.4rc1. All other plugins (realplayer, acrobat-reader, flash) apply correctly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install jre via download or manually 2. Try some webpage with java-applets 3. Actual Results: I am requested to download jre Expected Results: display java-applet
You have to use a gcc-3.2 based jre with mozilla 1.4rc2. See releases notes of it. Or it is not for FreeBSD but only linux ?
I didn't compile anything from source. I just downloaded mozilla's linux-binaries and installed them in FreeBSD's linux-compatibility system (which should behave like a RedHat, I believe). Also I dont't use any native FreeBSD version of the jre. I downloaded the linux-jre from netscape.
Well, so you should read release notes : 1) Mozilla 1.4rc2 is now built with gcc 3.2.3 (type about:buildconfig in url bar) 2) JRE from NS should be 1.3.1 or 1.4.1. But there is a problem of compatibility because this JRE is built using gcc 2.95. http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.4rc2/#new-issues "These are items that have been added to the release notes since the last milestone although the bugs themselves may have existed previously. * Mozilla 1.4 for Linux requires Sun J2SE v 1.4.2 Beta to run Java applets" I am using Blackdown java and it works. I don't know if it is working with FreeBSD. I think so this is not a mozilla bug. Closing bug as invalid ?!
yes, it's invalid RC2 is now compiled with Gcc3.2 (which is 20% faster) and RC1 is compiled with the old GCC2.95. You need a JRE that is also compiled with GCC3.2 if it should work. Solutions : JRE1.4.2 Beta or Blackdown. See the plugindoc link in about:plugins for additional help

O.K. Getting new java-stuff to run on FreeBSD will take some time. But that isn't mozilla's fault.
