After applying the 3.6.14 update we have failures navigating the screens on our control systems graphics interface. Viewing the java console gives the following messages: java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol: at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source) at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager.setupGrayBoxPainter(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager.access$500(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager$AppletExecutionRunnable.run(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source) java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol: wbapplet.jar at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source) at java.net.URL.<init>(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin.util.GrayBoxPainter.setProgressFilter(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager.setupGrayBoxPainter(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager.access$500(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager$AppletExecutionRunnable.run(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source) exception: name. java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: name at sun.plugin2.applet.Applet2ClassLoader.addJar(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Applet2Manager.loadJarFiles(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager$AppletExecutionRunnable.run(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source) Exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: name

I have cleared all history, restarted, refreshed etc. Release 3.6.13 works without issue as do all previous versions.

Any hints?

TIA, ray L.

Mozilla are aware of the issue involving Java applets not working in Firefox 3.6.14 and are working on a fix, no timescale but they are planning on a quick release. They are currently creating Firefox 3.6.15 which should fix this and will then be testing it to ensure the fix is working.

Any way we can rolll back to the previous release that was working fine until Mozilla have the update ready?
