Description Mike Grant 2010-12-22 18:33:58 UTC
Description of problem:
The openjdk firefox plugin appears to lose a cookie when making a http request.  This has serious consequences for any web pages with cookie-using applets, frequently resulting in denied requests or broken applets.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Majority of testing was against java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin- but this has been confirmed on current Fedora 14 rpms too.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Firefox with the openjdk plugin.  Set some cookies
 - e.g. visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/cookietest-set.php - this sets 7 cookies named TestCookie[1-7]
2. Confirm they are correctly set
 - e.g. visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/cookietest-read.php or look at the cookie store in Firefox
3. Run a java applet that makes an HTTP request (including cookies) and note one cookie is missing
 - e.g. visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/test.html which retrieves and displays the output from the cookietest-read.php link above.  Source of this applet is at http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/HelloWorld.java (yeah, I'm not good at Java)
Actual results:
Java plugin output shows the webserver saw TestCookie[2-7] (TestCookie1 is missing)

Expected results:
Java plugin output shows the webserver saw TestCookie[1-7]

Additional info:
Attached copies of the relevant testing scripts.  You'll need to build the java class (javac HelloWorld.java).

Using the Sun Java plugin, everything works correctly (all 7 cookies are reported).  This can be tested by: "sudo rpm -e java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin
; cd ~/.mozilla/plugins ; ln -s SUN_JRE_LOCATION/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so"

I looked at reporting this upstream, but had some difficulty finding the appropriate location, then some more difficulty building a test environment to confirm this isn't just a Fedora issue.  Please advise whether (and where) I should try upstream or if Fedora can handle this.
