    Post Embed tag is not working with Mozilla Firefox 23, 24 and 25

    Requirement:
    While loading the java applet on a page, if the user system do not have plugin loaded then our code should redirect the user to get Java 1.6 plugin.


    <script language="javascript" >
    <OBJECT classid="clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" name="OrderApplet"';
    WIDTH = 775 HEIGHT = 600  
    codebase="https:\/\/java.sun.com\/update\/1.6.0\/jinstall-6-windows-i586.cab">';
    …………
    <PARAM NAME = "type"  VALUE="application\/x-java-applet;version=1.6.0_31">';
    <PARAM NAME = "scriptable"   VALUE  = "true" >';
    ………
    <COMMENT>';
    <EMBED type="application\/x-java-applet;version=1.6"  
    ………
    pluginspage="https:\/\/javadl.sun.com\/webapps\/download\/AutoDL?BundleId=60336">
    <NOEMBED>
    <\/COMMENT>;
    <\/NOEMBED><\/EMBED>;
    <\/OBJECT>;
    </script>

    User is getting pop-up message for JRE6 installation with browser IE8, 9, and 10 and also with Mozilla Firefox 22, but it’s failing with latest version of Mozilla Firefox23,24 and 25.

    I have gone through so many sites but could find any reason for this behavior.

    I have provided JRE6 32-bit version download URL, here I don’t think so I’m doing any version incompatibility because both the JRE6 and Mozilla Firefox are 32-bit version. And 64 bit Firefox version is not available for windows.


    I’m not sure why the code is working with Firefox 22 and its lower version but doesn’t work with higher version than firefox22….like 23,24,25

    Can anyone help to sort out this issue?

    Thanks,
    Sumit

    Thanks for the reply.

    Above junk of code is a part of an applet.
    I have written a script for auto downloading jre6 as I have explained above.
    But it is not working in case of latest Mozilla Firefox.

    So want to know am I doing any mistake in the script ? or else
    Is there any changes in the latest of Mozilla relates to applet which couldn't allow auto download?
    or something else which i unable to figure out!!!
