This bug is tracking the JDK deploy side of http://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-24140.

We have to adapt to the new NPAPI Cocoa text input model by making sure Firefox and Safari send events in a consistent manner, and then sending fake key-typed events on the FX side.

Verified on Mac10.9.1/FF26 with 8b119.

EVALUATION Rewrote initial configuration of plugin to request 'new' NPAPI text event mode, and request that Glass generate a key-typed when repeating and in Firefox.
