Symptoms

When running forms with signed jar files, the following dialog is displayed upon startup on screen and the browser hangs when using "separateFrame=true":

Warning - Security
The application's digital signature cannot be verified.
Do you want to run the application?
.
Name: ....
Publisher: ....
From: .....
[ ] Always trust content from this publisher.
.
[RUN] [Cancel]

It is not possible to press any of the buttons on this page. It is necessary to kill the browser. This hang can occur randomly or every time.

This symptom may occur for different causes. For the cause involved in this note, the issue occurs when "separateFrame=true" option is used in versions 11.1.1.2 or 11.1.1.3 (and also in 10.1.2.3 when a patch that contains Patch:8552429 is installed).

Another note handles the case where this symptom occurs whatever the Forms version or the value given to separateFrame, for this please rather consult:

that contains the detailed steps to implement the solution known as jar pre-loading. (formerly titled as B2).
