Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
applet to run
What version of icedtea-web and java-1.7.0-openjdk are you running? This will display the answer:
rpm -q icedtea-web java-1.7.0-openjdk
also please provide url which freeze your firefox, otherwise we can not check.
As a workaround you may try:
- disable selinux temporally
- try other browser - sorry for this - but newest firefoxes are causing us a lot of troubles :(
This simple version checker freezes Firefox, seems any applet makes it freeze.
Tried a few plugins and they seem to work in chrome browser, version 29 unstable
disabled SElinux and applets are working again in Firefox.
hmm.. I have encountered this(or similar) behaviour already, but is should not appear in regular installations - please, I wil be very happy if you post an selinux warnings.
btw note this: http://stopdisablingselinux.com/ ;)
The issue is that firefox have special set of rules. I will reassign this to selinux now.
restorecon -R -v ~/
Does this fix the .icedtea label?
If it does not help, please reopen the bug. Thank you.
nope. This must be fixed in packages. (probably selinux ones).
As after every update selinux is enabling itself, then it is not possible to have plugin disabled in such a way. Please update selinux policies for firefox to have icedtea-web enabled by default.
We need to see AVC msg.
how do i get the AVC message?
