Quick Tip: Netscape 7, OS X and Java
Next, locate Netscape 7 on your hard drive. If Netscape is currently running, quit it. Then right-click the application icon (or hold down the Control key and click), and select "Show Package Contents" from the Contextual menu that appears.
Within the Contents window that appears, you'll see several subfolders. Open the folder called Mac OS and the subfolder called Plug-Ins. Here you'll find the Default plugin and the MRJPluginCarbon plugin version 1.0.
Drag the new version of the MRJPluginCarbon plugin into this directory, replacing the old one. (If you'd like, you can first remove the old version and save it somewhere safe on your hard drive, just in case.) Once it's in there, you should be able to click once on it and see that it's version 1.0.1.
Now close up the Package Contents window and launch Netscape 7. If everything goes as well for you as it did for me, you'll be in instant Mac Java heaven! If you're happy, be sure to drop Mr. Beard a letter to let him know that his development efforts for the Mac community are well appreciated.
