User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:5.0) Gecko/20110706 Firefox/5.0 SeaMonkey/2.2
Build ID: 20110706120824

Steps to reproduce:

Tried to use the checkbox at Preferences->Advanced to Enable and Disable Java in SeaMonkey 2.1 and 2.2


Actual results:

The result was that the configuration variable "security.enable_java" toggled between True and False when the checkbox was checked or unchecked but Java execution was not affected by this. I had to use the Add-ons Manager to Enable or Disable Java execution.


Expected results:

The Preferences checkbox should have Enabled and Disabled Java execution under SeaMonkey as it used to do in previous versions of SM.
