      Description

      Customer wishes to use netlet (Portal server functioanlity) with Sun Java Plugin
      1.4.2.x for Mozilla1.4 and Netscape 7.1

      Customer wishes to use plugin, but wants proxy info to be collected from the
      browser's pac file URL. Java Plugin control panel has "Use Browser Setings"
      check-marked under "Proxies".

      When using Mozilla with the plugin, we get the Proxy Configuration on java
      console as "Browser Proxy Configuration" and not as "Automatic Proxy Configuration".

      This is problem for our customer's Mozilla users. Similar problem is encountered
      with Netscape users also.

      We have earlier filed similar bug for IE - 4988192. We incorporated suggestions
      made by the plugin team then.

      Please fix this or let us know of any workarounds.

       Browser type is needed to find out how we
       should get the proxy host and proxy port.
       However it is more important for us to
       find out the proxy port and host from an
       applet when user is using java plugin.
       Please see 4988192 for more info.

       We resolved this problem when using java
       plugin with IE with the following
       workaround ...

       We need similar workaround or fix for
       Mozilla and Netscape when using java plugi
