RE: F9: Firefox: Java based site fails to work.


the issue that he seems to be dealing with seems to be a function of the SUN
jre required in order to run the app on the client site. i'm not sure that
anything that you've pointed to relates to this specific issue.

so, there again.. if you don't want to help, you can simply delete the msg,
and move on.. there are others who apparently would try to offer a helping

a little karma goes along way....

for the record, I have previously suggested to OP that he is repetitive
with this behavior...asking the list before he makes any attempt to find
the answer himself.

also for the record (and I am not the biggest fan of this), the 'Mailing
List Guidelines' linked to at the bottom of each and every e-mail...the
very first paragraph...

Before Posting to the List
There are a number of ways you can find help within your system. If you
don't find the answer there, try to look into the list archives before
posting a question. This is a high volume list and chances are that
someone has already had the same problem you are now trying to fix. See
Useful Resources below for a list of places to try. Refer to this
presentation on mail etiquette that you should follow.

Since the topic of java-plugins for firefox on Fedora 9 has been
discussed at least 5 times on this list (if not 15) since the release of
Fedora 9, since the topic is mentioned in the Fedora 9 release notes and
since the topic is covered on the Fedora Project Wiki, and since the
topic is easily googled, it seemed to me to be a very fair response.

Also FTR, Iced Tea in Fedora 9 is now OpenJDK
