Description

12 years ago
In bug 288356 we turned off Java applets on Windows when a screen reader was
present because heap corruption caused Firefox to crash.

Wayne Deangelo from the IBM accessibility center recently ran tests with a
variety of older and new JREs, and the problem has gone away.

We should reenable Java applets on Windows when a screen reader is present --
basically, back out bug 288356.
