Can you provide a better fix that does not break all our existing users who update to Update 25 or 40?
I would be happy for our applet to have access restricted to its own directory or lower.
Or for an all-permissions applet, make getCodeBase() and getDocumentBase() return the correct values.
Please see the second link below for a further discussion.
PS There is a separate Firefox 23 issue stopping access to local Java applets - this should be fixed this week in version 24.

Our company uses the above FindinSite-CD software to provide search functionality on our data CDs and we have done so successfully for many years. These latest changes in Update 40 have now broken this vital component on our product and will cost us considerably in technical support time and replacing the discs when a fix comes out. Just an end user's perspective!
