[quote=siria] Still trying to get more 'Durchblick' with that plugins puzzle :cool: So this npjp2 seems some sort of "extended version" of the still contained "classic version", which is automatically used in FF2, and doesn't sound like Sun targets any other browsers as IE and FF?? This is Sun's description of that infamous "Next Generation" plugin "npjp2": [b] http://java.sun.com/javase/6/6u10faq.jsp#NewPlugIn [/b] That's quite interesting too, dating from 2008: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r21276364-Java-Runtime-Environment-JRE-6-Update-10-October-16-200~start=100 [quote]There is no "vulnerability" in the auto update feature. Some people complained that [b]auto update does not remove old versions of Java[/b], leaving previous vulnerable versions on your machine and you have to manually uninstall them. ... I too had a problem running an applet after installing version 6u10. The problem was in the Next generation plugin. This can be disabled in the Java control Panel.[/quote] And April 2009: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1178475&p=6164205 That just sounds all like Java update installations now keep old versions too and lets the applets choose to use one of those old versions, instead of the new one which supposedly is backwards compatible...? And this function is provided by that npjp2.dll? And perhaps gives errors if a user has manually deleted old java versions...? And if that buggy npjp2 isn't found, or if the "classic version" plugin is copied into the KM plugins folder, the browser always simply uses the latest "classic" java version??[/quote]
