Java plug-in complains if general
.useragent .vendor preference is set to "MSIE".
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 My bank had me add a user-defined preference is about:config named general.useragent.vendor and give it a string value "MSIE" as a tempoarary work around for a browser checking bug on their web page. Unfortunately, once this is set, starting Mozilla fresh yields a popup dialog behind the Mozilla spash image titled "Jave Plug-in Error" with the text "Java Plug-in for Netscape Nvigator should not be used in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Please use Java Plug-in for Microsoft Internet Explorer instead." Only button available is OK. After clicking OK, everything seems to operate normally until the next time Mozilla is started fresh (ie after closing all Mozilla windows and waiting a few seconds). Probably an issue with Sun's Java plug-in, not Mozilla, but not sure how to report this to Sun directly so... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a mozilla window 2.Enter URL "about:config" 3.Right-click in the body and choose New -> String 4.Enter general.usergent.vendor as the preference name. 5.Enter MSIE as value 6.Exit Mozilla completely (all windows) 7.Start Mozilla Actual Results: A popup dialog appears titled "Jave Plug-in Error" with the text "Java Plug-in for Netscape Navigator should not be used in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Please use Java Plug-in for Microsoft Internet Explorer instead." Dialog appears behind splash screen until you click on it's titlebar to bring it to the foreground. Mozilla does not continue loading until you click OK. Expected Results: Program should start as normal with no pop-up dialog. Tried upgrading to latest Sun 1.4.2.03 Java J2SE from unknown prior revision, no change.
