Using the nightly, http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp does not load after displaying a screen saying "Switching applet". Nightly version info: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b4pre) Gecko/20100808 Minefield/4.0b4pre The applet does load correctly in 3.6.8 though.
Minefield (aka trunk or mozilla-central) builds no longer use the JEP -- instead (by default) they use Sun/Apple's new Java Plugin2. So this isn't a bug in the JEP. I've confirmed this bug ... more or less. But I didn't see any "Switching applet" screen. Instead I saw the following error in the Java Console: Loaded image: http://www.minecraft.net/client/logo_small.png Loaded image: jar:http://www.minecraft.net/client/lwjgl_util_applet.jar?v=15!/ appletprogress.gif java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /private/var/folders/uX/ uXTP2FH5Fc8Ocdvj0df2s++++TI/-Tmp-/www.minecraft.net/Minecraft/natives/ libjinput-osx.jnilib: no suitable image found.

I tested on OS X 10.5.8. Note that this bug's applet (loaded from http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp) is a signed applet, which (if you give it permission) can do whatever it wants to your computer (limited only by the permissions of the account you've logged in with). Also note that this may turn out to be a bug in the applet -- for example it may not be aware that Sun/Apple's Java Plugin2 is available on OS X, and may make false assumptions because of this.

Closing old bugs in the Plugins component. We aren't going to track issues in 3rd-party plugins in the Mozilla bug tracker. In addition, support for NPAPI plugins will be removed at the end of this year; for more details see the post at https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2015/10/08/npapi-plugins-in-firefox/ If there is a serious bug in Firefox, it needs to be filed in the "Core" product, "Plug-Ins" component.
