Thread: Icedtea-web plugin is flavourless replacement for Java.

  1. #1

    Default Icedtea-web plugin is flavourless replacement for Java.

    Java 1.6.0 browser plugin has been replaced by Icedtea plugin in the last
    update. Unfortunately, Firefox now complains that java isn't enabled
    when, of course, it still is. The new plug-in is also listed in the FF
    add-ons.

    I assume this isn't the intended effect of the update?

    There's a bug report on this:
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=702825
    It looks as if they want to get out a fix for this as soon as possible.

    There's also another thread on the issue:
    java missing in SeaMonkey?

    I'd read the original and not made the connection. Probably "misread"
    would be more accurate. Sorry!

    Thanks for the info.
