User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

If I open http://chem.kcn.ru/applets/mainapplet.html there will be "Click here
to get the plugin", and if I click that firebird will search for
application/x-java-vm plugin. But if by entering about:plugins I can see

Java Plug-in
    File name: NPOJI610.dll
    Java Plug-in 1.4.2_01 for Netscape Navigator (DLL Helper)
MIME Type 	Description 	Suffixes 	Enabled
application/x-java-vm 	Java Virtual Machine for Netscape 		Yes


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install java plugin from Sun
2. Open http://chem.kcn.ru/applets/mainapplet.html
3. Firebird will require java plugin

Actual Results:  
Requiring Java plugin already installed.

Expected Results:  
Correct using Java VM plugin

Arkady, if you're still reading this, please check out the following page:
http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/phoenixwin.html
and look under the question: "How do I install the Java Plugin?"

Apparently you may have to apply a registry patch to get Java to work with
Firebird. It seems that if you've run the standard Mozilla browser in the past
(which most people have at some stage), then the registry item most likely
already exists. But if you don't have Mozilla as well, then the Java plugin
fails to work.

Lemme know if this works :)

Thanks a lot, it's worked after gegistry patch applied :).
But better, I belive, is to check this registry key at the starting firebird and
add it if necessary.

Yeah, I don't pretend to understand the way Firebird works, but I know they're
moving towards an installer now. So maybe that'll stop it happening :)
