      Description

      JRE Build: Hopper Beta b14
      JRE Location: http://sqesvr.sbay/deployment3/hopper/HB-beta-14/win32.b14
      Platform: All
      Browsers: NS4.x/NS6.x/IE

      1) Install JRE
      2) Invoke any browser
      3) Load URL http://sqesvr.sfbay/deployment1/ws/doc/proc/JPI_RSA.html
        Load Test 1 (Verisign)

      4) It will prompt with a Security Dialog box.
         Click on "More Details"
         
       It will display "Details - Certificate " dialog box with certificate information.
       Note the size of the dialog box.

      5) Select the "Validity" field
      6) Click on "Close"
      7) Click on "More Details" again

      Note this time the size of the dialog box is much smaller.
      The bottom right are is much smaller than in previous occasion.
      It looks like the size has been shrunk to fit the exact information.
      We cannot resize the dialog box. So it is very hard to read the contents
      on selecting other fields as the scrolling area is very small (around 2 lines)


      8) Click Close
      9) Click Grant always
      10) Invoke Plugin Control Panel and go to Certificates Tab
          You will see an entry for Verisign
      11) Click on Details
          It will again display the Certificate dialog.

      Repeat steps 5 to 7

      This size however does not change.
      This is because the default selection in Details window is always set to
      "signature" in this case whereas in earlier case, it depended on
      what was chosen by user.


      If we ensure " Signature" field to be always selected by default, in former case, we can resolve this problem.
