I've spent a few hours googling around trying to work this one out and I'm totally stuck.
On Windows 7, fresh copy of FireFox installed, I can go to the JavaVersion website and I get, as you'd expect, the "Missing plug-in" message at the top of the main FireFox window.
On my own page, which contains almost nothing other than my applet reference as:-
<applet id="myapplet" code="myapplet.class" archive="win/myapplet.jar" width="0" height="0" mayscript="true" >
<param name = 'command' value='12345' />
When I load my own page, containing this, I do not get the "Install missing plugin" message in the browser. The page loads, and just sits there and does nothing.
Has anyone else experienced this ?
I've been through the code for the JavaVersion site and the only substantial difference that I can see is that my applet is signed and uses an archive. Other than that I can't see it, but I know I must be missing something....
