Description
Support for the JPI_PLUGIN2 environment variable as a way of toggling between the old and new Java Plug-Ins in IE needs to be removed. With the integration of the fix for 6606277, the old and new plug-ins no longer live side-by-side in the same directory so the code path for this environment variable causes a dereference of a null pointer and a browser crash.

EVALUATION

Removed support for JPI_PLUGIN2 environment variable. With the
integration of the fix for 6606277, the old and new plug-ins no longer
live side-by-side in the same directory so the code path for this
environment variable causes a dereference of a null pointer and a
browser crash.

Tested manually. No explicit regression test.
