Description
Consumers come to Java.com to install the latest version of the JRE. At the end of the installation, an applet playing a video is displayed. If the browser is not restarted, then the applet will cause the browser to crash.

We would like to have
1) the installer to close all browser windows during the installation of the Java Runtime Environment.
2) installs the JRE
3) re-opens a new browser window at the end of the JRE to Java.com.

>>We would like to have

What about auto-download installs?  I don't think it's would be very nice of our installer to close all of the browsers.  If they are trying to view a customer website that auto-downloads/installs the jre, they will then have to reopen the browser and re-find the location where they were at.

I think the problem is here:

At the end of the installation, an applet playing a video is displayed. If the browser is not restarted, then the applet will cause the browser to crash.

Why does the video applet cause the browser to crash?

new comments from Stanley:

	"Mozilla/Firefox always loads Java at startup. When a new JRE is 
installed, these browsers don't recognize the new JRE unless they are 
restarted.

	Internet Explorer is less problematic (as usual). The browser could 
recognize the new JRE as soon as the JRE is installed. You may want to 
restart IE only when there is an older JRE already running in the 
browser, so restarting the browser could avoid JRE collision."
