Improve TEP client support for Firefox browser

Status: Completed

Priority: High



Java 1.6 upgrade 10 introduced a completely new Java plug-in architecture for deploying Java applets, called the 'next generation' Java plug-in.

The TEP browser client does not currently support this next-generation architecture, and can only operate with this new plug-in disabled (which requires additional customer configuration of the Java environment).

Firefox v3.6 and above requires the use of this next-generation plug-in for Java applets. There is no configuration facility available to force the browser to use the previous legacy plug-in. This means that the TEP browser client is not supported for commonly used versions of Firefox today.

Firefox 10 ESR is a target platform for this epic.
