        Description

        System specific details:
        Windows XP SP2
        Browser(s): IE 7.0.5730.11
        Firefox: 2.0.0.2

        Test version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6
        Windows Offline Installation, Multi Language

        Tried to update from JRE 1.5.0_11 to JRE 6 using Windows Offline Installation from:
        http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

        Installation completed successfully. Testvm applet from:
        http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml
        still displays older JRE 1.5.0_11 as installed and working in Firefox.

        Running same applet in Internet Explorer 7 displays the correct version which means update is sucessful.

        Mozilla Family is enabled as supported browser in Java Control panel.

        Output for About:plugins in Firefox (as attached) depicts traces of two different plug-ins including 1.5.0_11 and 1.6. Also attached is the install log.

        I am not able to reproduce this bug locally.

        We have received few requests as incidents as well where users failed to run the latest version in Firefox in spite of installing the same.
