Triaging War Room bugs. This is from bugscape 7076.

1. go to the url
2. click on Play
3. this will cause a pop-up offering you to install a helper plugin which to my 
understanding should help you to install the real stuff for playing the content
4. follow the instructions and install it into 4.x
5. copy npinstall.dll over to Mozilla Plugins folder, refresh
6. reload the url, click Play again to supposedly continue the installation
7. crash

The plugin is LiveConnected. What happens is that on its initialization it 
queries us for JavaEnv. Since we don't support LiveConnect with the current code 
base we just return zero. It gets dereferenced inside the plugin, hence the 
crash. There is nothing we can do here. Should be evangelized. Two moments: 
plugin is not doing its best (not checking a pointer for null before using it) 
and LiveConnect functionality will not work anyway. There are other ways to make 
plugins scriptable with the Mozilla code base.

Marking invalid.
