A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
After update 24, signed applets do not work any more. Problem is with permissions. FireFox gives very uninformative jnlp parse exception (like if applets were not signed), and IE 9 reports Security exception when applet is trying to open JFileChooser or get user.dir system property.
granting all permissions with no restrictions in user's .java.policy helps, but not if you restrict it by 'signedBy' or 'codebase'. It is impossible to tell clients they have to grant all permissions to all applets.
REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6
This bug can be reproduced always.
