Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.2; rv:6.0.2) Gecko/20110902 Firefox/6.0.2 SeaMonkey/2.3.3
Build ID: 20110902180055

Steps to reproduce:

For testing purposes, I would like SeaMonkey to use the Java 5.0 plugin and JRE (not just the JRE). Prior to SeaMonkey 2.3, I would just copy the Java 5.0 np*.dll files to the SeaMonkey plugins directory. SeaMonkey 2.3, however, discovered my Java 6 JRE and used that. Following the advice at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin_scanning, I tried to prevent the scan for JRE 6 by setting the config value plugin.scan.SunJRE to 1.9.


Actual results:

Nothing changed


Expected results:

I had hoped that the automatic scan would have been unsuccessful and that only the explicitly copied DLLs in the plugins directory would be used.

The old npoji plugin doesn't work anymore. JRE1.6 U14 or later is required and it comes with the new java plugin npjp2.dll.
With the new add-ons manager, it has become quite easy to enable/disable plugins individually. In particular if you have two different plugins installed for a common functionality, you can choose which one to use. Of course, if only one is up-to-date you should disable the other.

Thanks, Tony and Matthias. I thought I'd seen the JRE 5.0 plug-in work when I uninstalled JRE 6, but I must have been deluding myself. I think my best bet is to keep a SeaMonkey 2.2 installation around for when I want to use the JRE 5.0 plug-in.

That part might be bug 583566.
