      Description

      Java console fails to display on Unix platform since b142.
      On Linux machine (OEL, Ubuntu), Java console deos not show at all.
      On Solaris machine (sparc 10). Java console popped up with nothing in it- it was greyed out

      *** Tested Configurations:
      - x64 Oracle Linux 6 and 6.6/ 64-bit FF 3.6.x/ 32-bit FF3.6.x
      - x86 Ubuntu 10.04/ FF 4.01
      - Solaris Sparc 10/ FF 4.01/ FF 3.6.15
      - JRE: promoted 64-bit/32-bit jre7-b141- b145

      *** Steps to reproduce:
      1) Install jre7-b145-amd64
      2) Configure the default 64-bit FF3.6.x on the system (under /usr/lib64/firefox*) to use b145 plugin
      3) Select to enable "Show console" from the installed b145 Java control panel (got from step 1)
      4) Use the default 64-bit FF 3.6.x to load any applet of your choice
       ex: http://games.yahoo.com/console/bo

      If you don't have the Java console shown, then the issue is reproducible. It is a regression since b142. On Solaris Java console with nothing
