With Mozilla 1.6 java wasn't recognized any more, showed up in about:plugins. Java then didn't work with any of the older versions of Mozilla too. I had to import the firebird.reg to make it work, probably the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla] "CurrentVersion"="1.5" was needed. But why ? And why does this break Java for all older Versions of Mozilla on the machine ? This strangeness did cost me quite some time on 3 Machines. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Remove HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Mozilla, check about:plugins to verify java. 2. Use 1.6a build on http://www.heise.de/security/dienste/browsercheck/tests/java.shtml 3. Java is not started. it shows "click here for plugin", although the .dll helpers are at the right place. Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: Website should say "Java ist AKTIV!" without hacking 'round the registry before.
Addendum: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org has to be removed to reproduce. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla] "CurrentVersion"="1.5" Makes java work _without_ restarting mozilla, just page reload is enough.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla] "CurrentVersion"="" Note that the value can even be empty, and java works. removing/renaming the CurrentVersion registry entry disables Mozilla-Java.
