Description
If JavaFX is installed on top of old insecure JRE then we will show warning every time any application is run.
The warning will be the same as in case user has latest secure JRE installed and app requests older JRE. 

As in this case it was user choice to not install newer JRE then we should not warn him every time.

From Jeff H.:

> As long as the applet is not *explicitly* requesting 6u10, we should just run the applet on the existing JRE.

Comments
EVALUATION normaelly - security baselines are delivered only with the JRE, so the latest jre on a system must satisfy the security baseline. but with deployment bits delivered with JavaFX, security baseline may not be satisfied by the latest jre installed on a system. Fix is to just allow the latest jre installed on a system to automatically satisfy the security baseline.
