I have an applet and I want to display it in the Web-browser. I am using javascript to upload this applet.

I am checking browser�s name by using following command

Then I am adding if-else statement depends on the type of the browser. As follows:

This code works fine in all browsers like IE, NetScape, FireFox etc.

Problem is when user disables/ uninstall Java Runtime from there browser then this code still works fine in IE but in the case of FireFox it goes wrong.

When user goes to Tools/ Options menu in FirFox and unselects the Java Enabled checkbox and after that if tries to load this applet then applet loads as just white screen.
Please let me know if you have any option to load applet in FireFox browser even if the java runtime is disabled.

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place.

This is especially true for posts that have nothing to do with forum subject.
