This scenario is on an appliance with a locked UI and no internet access. This scenario is not on the laptop.

Background info: - Linux embedded system - Firefox browser is being used to for local console display connecting to local web server on the appliance - Since this is an embedded appliance, there is no guarantee that an internet connection is available - Options have been set on the Firefox browser so that the end user does not have access to the Add-ons menu. Referred to as "kiosk" mode.

The scenario is to enable and allow Java on the browser.

Typically, on a laptop, the Java plug-in can be activated by navigating to http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp. The user is prompted to activate the Java plug-in.

On this embedded appliance, there is no internet connection available, and the user does not have access to the Add-ons menu.

Is there a scripted method to perform the same steps? Activating Java creates a copy of the pluginreg.dat, but there are other settings that are required to completely activate the Java plug-in. Are there preferences that can be set, or other scripts run to perform this action for this scenario on an embedded appliance running Linux?

Thanks for any info.
