Certificates trust accept window does not appear

Hello Friends
I have signed jar with a certificate exported. Now when another user from some other machine runs tries to invoke the html(which contains the applet) from my server they get a certificate request poping up asking whether you what the certificate to be downloaded?
But the same thing does not happen in my machine the applet tries to just load it self without the request to accept to trust certificate pop up why any help would be greatly appreciated.?
Thanks
Farouk

The dialog is not popped up every time you run the applet. Usually you have a choice of 1) trust this applet always, 2) trust this applet just this one time, 3) don't trust the applet. If you ever choose option 1, you will not get asked again, and the applet will just be trusted from then on. Could it be that you clicked that option on your machine?

Thanks Ulf
I understand that. But I did not get it even once? Thats what I am wondering?
Not sure why?

Please can you try if you get it.?

That's correct, you should have gotten it once. Maybe you altered your local policy so that it trusts anything an applet might do implicitly? (That's just a guess, though, I'm not sure that the JVM wouldn't ask anyway if it was presented with a certificate.)
