The Installer can't download the java plugin from http://home.netscape.com/plugins/jvm.html in an environment, where the HTTP/FTP-PROXY is the only connection from the workstation to the internet, i.e., the exists no direct connection from the workstation to netscape.com, only by PROXY. This suggest that the installer does not use PROXY settings. It is possible to download the java plugin manually from ftp://ftp.netscape.com/pub/netscape6/english/6.0/unix/linux22/xpi/jre.xpi Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Place a workstation with mozilla 0.9 behind a firewall that only allows connection through a HTTP/FTP-PROXY. 2. Go to http://home.netscape.com/plugins/jvm.html 3. Try to download the java plugin for GNU/Linux. 4. This doesn't work. 5. Download the file manually from ftp://ftp.netscape.com/pub/netscape6/english/6.0/unix/linux22/xpi/jre.xpi 6. Activate the installer by clicking on the local .xpi file.
Can you submit the log files from your proxy server for an installation session? Bug 78090 suggests there is a more general problem, you would not receive this file even if you had a direct connection.
This was the bug that fixed the problems with HTTP/FTP proxies in Mozilla installer. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 67246 ***
