firefox works; ie 7 with group policies not

    hi,

    imagine the following construction: ie 7 requests default website in iis 6.
    iis 6 contains isapi filter/extension (in fact it is both)
    isapi_redirect.dll, which forward to tomcat. tomcat is hosting our
    application, which uses an open java sso-application. this sso-app tries to
    forward to our portal-application. at this point it crashes for one user, iis
    is delivering a blank page, which comes from iis default website root,
    instead of tomcat.

    ie7 is integrated with several group policies.

    another user - at first glance having the same group policies given for ie7
    - is successfully able to work = no blank page coming from iis.

    and here is the tricky part: as soon as firefox portable apps is used as
    browser everything works? only ie - for some user(s) - is not working. where
    to start troubleshooting? please note: disabling group policies is not
    possible!

    You are probably comparing apples and oranges.
    Implementation of Java for IE uses an ActiveX control.
    Firefox does not usually support ActiveX.

    Try uninstalling all Java support on the problem machine
    and then reinstall if it is needed.


    Good luck

    no, i am not comparing apples with oranges, otherwise i would have fixed the
    problem on my own.

    when talking about ie7 we also talk about the same machine, only the user
    accounts are different being logged on on this computer. and activex-controls
    are not allowed on this machine due to group policies.

    anyone else having an idea?
