        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        Java has updated dtjava.js to create a "warning" div at the top left of the browser window when using Chrome /Edge. This div blocks web content required for customers to use the website even if java is not supported by these browsers.


        REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u101

        ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
        dtjava.js prior to 8/9/16 did not show the div warning box, it displayed a message prompt.

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Using Chrome or Edge log into a java enabled website such as "snaponepc.com"

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The user expects to see no warning boxes blocking content
        ACTUAL -
        "Java Plug-in is not supported by this browser. More info" warning div is blocking content

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        AdBlock plugin can block the div, however this is unacceptable for widespread customer use
