1.)
Originally the bug 6887492 was fixed in 6u18-rev-b09 which was however not available (The official version one could download was rev-07)

2.)
The fix was supposed to be included into 6u21 (which was 6u20 before) but is wasn't. In 6u21-rev-b02 it was still included:

however not in the final version:

Why is that? What happend?

The bug fix was rolled into 6u21, though it may not show on the list. Are you still experiencing the bug in 6u21?

Hi Roger,

are you certain?
There is no change at our end...
Then why didn't you include it in the release notes?

Thanks

Yes, the fix is in there. It may be that your configuration differs from the test cases that we were provided from other individuals/groups. Your config does work correctly with 6u13?

Hi Roger
We are also facing similar issues in downloading/ running Java applets on IE6/7 with JRE version 1.6u15/16/17. I tested with JRE 1.6u13 and the applets work fine with pac files but not with the higher versions mentioned above. Has this issue been fixed in jre 1.6u21 and above?
Please confirm
Regards,
Mayank
