        Description

        When FireFox is installed on windows machine, the Java plugin can't read FireFox keystore as expected.

        In order to support browser keystore in Mozilla family, a JSS package need to be installed. Java plugin is reading from a registry file come with Mozilla browser to find out where is the browser certificate file.

        The new release of FireFox is staring to use a Profile.ini instead of registry.dat file, and change the directory structure too, therefore our Java plugin can't find FireFox's certfiicate file based on old Mozilla's path.

        This bug is only for FireFox on window, it works for Mozilla browser and FireFox on Solaris.
