Firefox 3.6 does not work with JInitiator (Oracle application server, any version). Only Firefox 3.5 work well, why?


With Firefox 3.5.?? when I start an URL over an Oracle application via JInitiator (or other versions) everything works well.

Using Firefox 3.6.?? when I start the same URL, nothing happens. With or without the plugin installed (Oracle JInitiator or other versions).

You have two JUniriator Plugins installed:

  1. JInitiator for Netscape Navigator (DLL Helper)
  2. JInitiator for Netscape Navigator (DLL Helper)

Try disabling the older version and see what happens.

Firefox 3.6 has a hard dependency on JRE 1.6. JInitiator 1.3 is based on JRE 1.3 and will not work in Firefox 3.6.

JInitiator is no longer supported for E-Business Suite environments. If you upgrade to Firefox 3.6, you must ensure that your E-Business Suite environment is also switched from using JInitiator to using the native Sun JRE plug-in.
