I am using Netscape Communicator 4.7.6
I downloaded the MRJ plug in sot that my Java apps would run faster from my browser.
I installed the MRJPlugin, and MRJplugin.jar in the Nestcape Plug in folder. Then I opened up Communicator and went to the preferences-> advanced window. For some reason I don't have the USe Java Plug-in check box enabled. Why is that?
I have Mac OS 9.0.4, MRJ 2.2.3, Communicator 4.7.6, and the latest MRJ plug for Netscape 4.X

Why isn't my browser able to use the Plug in?

ANy ideas?

Hi all,

I have a similar software configuration to yours (Mac OS 9.0.4, MRJ 2.2.3, Communicator 4.7.6, MRJPlugin 1.0b2), and the 'Use Java plug-in' box is enabled in my Communicator. My hardware configuration is an older beige PowerMac G3 266/128MB RAM/129MB VM.

A few possibilities come to mind, although I guess that you may have already ruled them out:- a low-memory situation in Communicator; a conflict of some kind among your system extensions; or, a mildly corrupted download of the plug-in.

But first, when you choose the 'Apple|About Plug-ins...' menu item in Communicator, does the MRJPlugin show up at all as having been loaded?
