Description Larry O'Leary 2013-08-18 01:17:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Java applets will not execute due to SELinux. It appears that java is unable to create the .icedtea directory in the users home:

avc:  denied  { create } comm="java" name=".icedtea" scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:mozilla_plugin_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0 tclass=dir

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 19 + GNOME + Firefox + OpenJDK + icedtea-web
2. From Firefox, navigate to http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

Actual results:
Java test applet exception occurs and SELinux denial is reported.

Expected results:
Java test applet should run normally and no SELinux denial should occur.

Additional info:
This looks like it might be a regression as this seems to have been reported a few different time over the past few months
