Last updated on OCTOBER 23, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Discoverer - Version 11.1.1.6.0 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When using an "auto-connect" URL (?_plus_popup=false&framedisplaystyle=embedded) with Java 6 or 7 in the Google Chrome or Safari browser, Discoverer will stop at "Get Plug-in" step. 

This is working fine in Internet Explorer (IE)  9 & 10 as well as in Firefox 8  &  25.
