Description
After the JRE setup completes, the dialog may display text if a browser or multipe browsers need to be restarted.  The text at a minimum has a typo and it does not say that both Internet Explorer and Firefox need to be restarted.  Users could assume that just the browser they used to download / install Java needs to be restarted.  They could lose data in the other browser.

Steps:
- Install a previous release JRE release.
- Open applets in IE and Firefox
- Install 6u10 JRE
- At the end of the installation, a dialog will be displayed with "Restart my browser now to verify installation".

The typo should be fixed: "Restart my browser now to verify installation" should at least say "Restart my browsers now to verify installation",
and I think it should say both IE and Firefox will be restarted as in:
"Restart my Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers now to verify installation"

EVALUATION

Upon approval from UE of the new string, it should be pretty easy to get this into b26.

EVALUATION

I think we should just keep it simple and say:  "Restart my browser now to verify installation" should at least say "Restart my browsers now to verify installation"

Otherwise, we can't get this into 6u10.
