Why Don't Domino's Java Applets Show Up for Mac Web Browsers?


For some reason, this is disabled by default in all Domino installations (as of this FAQ, at least to 8.5.2FP1).
Check the domino/data/browser.cnf file. You'll see a section for the Java editor applet as follows:

## DisableEditorApplet - Boolean indicating whether browser can handle the Editor Applet
Property DisableEditorApplet Boolean False
Rule True MSIE [0-9].*\; Macintosh # IE on MAC platform
Rule True MSIE [0-9].*\; Mac_PowerPC # IE on MAC platform
Rule True ^Mozilla/[0-9].*\(Macintosh # Netscape on MAC platform
Rule True ^Mozilla/[0-9].*\(Mac_PowerPC # Netscape on MAC platform
Rule True Notes # Notes browser

Change the two highlighted values from True to False to enable Java applets for Firefox on the Mac.
