Firefox and JRE 5
.0 doesn't work with MSIE-browser agent
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 If general.useragent.override is set to an MSIE useragent (*), then viewing a web-page with an embedded applet shows a blank where the applet should be. On one system of mine it shows a very obscure error-message-popup-box, on the other I get no message at all. (*) example: user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1;)"); Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make sure you have JRE 5.0 installed ( jre-1_5_0-windows-i586.exe ) 2. Go in your profiles folder, add the following line: user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1;)"); 3. Close and restart your browser and view a page with an applet, e.g. http://java.sun.com/applets/other/TumblingDuke/index.html Actual Results: The applet is missing - the place is blank. And on some systems I get an obscure error message pop-up about a NullPointerException at "com.sun.deploy.net.proxy.WNetscape4ProxyConfig.getNSversion(Unknown Source)" , screenshots are here: http://www.sencer.de/article/671/ Expected Results: The applet should have loaded and be displayed. I assume this is related to the way the JRE is invoked.
