Mozilla Build: 2001062504 Browser Cookies are not set in the HTTP header when JAVA applet performs URLConnection request. When pages are requested directly by the browser, the cookies are set in the HTTP header and sent to the server. However, when an applet withing a <APPLET> tag makes a URLConnection request for a page, the associated browser cookies are not set in the HTTP header. This results in the server not receiving the necessary browser cookies. When a sessionid cookie is used to track the user's authenticated session, this bug causes the server to invalidate the request as coming from the same browser session (which in fact is incorrect).
Additional note: This bug has the exact same behavior as bug 87024 (fixed). However, this bug applies to the JAVA applet making the request for the HTML page and not the browser itself.
