It seems that implementation of isPlugin2() always check for UseNewJavaPlugin under 1.7.0 key in the registry.
Should be looking under 10.0.*

SUGGESTED FIX http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/7-client/7082676.1

EVALUATION problem: isPlugin2() always return false with JRE 7 or above. it is using JRE version to check for whether plugin is enabled. it will not work starting with JRE 7 because JRE version and deploy (plugin) version is not the same anymore. fix: use BrowserJavaVersion key instead - this is better since it tells you the current default plugin version that is registered to browser.
