Steps to reproduce:
Using the nightly 15.0a1 (2012-05-07) from http://nightly.mozilla.org/.
Tested on windows XP with JRE 7u4 (downloaded from java.com).
I'm attaching 2 testcases.
The class files were compiled with jdk7.
StringTest - calls into applet's method upon "OnLoad"
My observation is that the java plugin module (npjp2.dll) wasn't loaded when
running the above tests.
Liveconnect calls should be successful.

Requesting tracking for the regression.
Assigning back to Josh
My debugging indicates that this is failing because we fail to create a Java plugin instance because we don't have an object frame. This makes me think this is a regression from bug 90268 or its follow-up fixes, not from the DOM object removal. The fact that this bug exists on Aurora, where we didn't remove the DOM object support, confirms my theory.
This works in the current Firefox 13 Beta, but not the current Firefox 14 Aurora or Firefox 15 Nightly.
This means bug 748343 isn't the regressing bug, removing it from the deps.

Tracking for 14, can we get a regression range here?

summary: Bug 406541 - Ensure we agree with java on applet codebase, and run security checks for file: codebase URIs. r=jst
406541 exposed several issues in the objectloadingcontent code, 745030 should fix this
Note that 406541 is going to be backed out from 14 due to all the issues depending on 745030, which will be too big a change for backporting
This bug blocks bug 406541 and doesn't depend on it. Can someone change the dependency?

John - are you planning to fix this for FF14 (shipping in 4 weeks), or would you like to make the case for untracking? We haven't seen a status update here in a while.
This is a similar regression to bug 736965, so my comments there apply - bug 745030 is the proper fix for this, but 406541 will be backed out of the affected versions until 745030 is ready (a rather large patch).
This could probably be duped against bug 736965, but I'd like to keep it open to make sure we've covered all known regression issues. It is probably redundant to track it, however
Bug 406541 has been backed out of all branches, so this regression should be no more
