Careful, It Still Isn't Quite Right
Authored by: ajsutton on Dec 09, '04 04:19:07PM

This plugin is definitely not all it's cracked up to be just yet, my advice would still be to hold off installing it unless you really need to. There's quite a few bugs that spring up with different applets which if you run into them are extremely annoying. Having said that, most of the simple applets that you run into around the web don't hit these problems so it may work fine for you.

Definitely take the time to carefully test any applets you depend on before getting too carried away with this plugin.

Keep in mind that deinstalling it is simply a matter of dragging the two binaries out of the plugins folder, you're not going to break anything permanently by trying it out :)

With the older versions of Firefox, I did run into trouble with it, and deinstalled it, I gave it another try with the 1.0 release of Firefox and it works great with that. But if I ever do run into something that didn't work with it, but did work the 'old way', it's a simple matter to correct.

Agreed, there are still issues.

For example, Firefox 1.0 will not launch with the 1.4.2 java plug-ins when the "adblock" extension is installed. FYI.

Another extension to add to the "not compatible with java 1.4.2 plug-ins" list;

Weatherfox

Actually, it *would* launch. What you had to do was remove the java plugin, then launch Firefox twice, then you could add the java plugin back in.

This was a known bug, and has actually been fixed as of today, with 0.8.9 version of the plugin...
