Native dialog which is shown for insecure JREs contains an Update button and when user clicks on it then application/applet should be blocked and user should be directed to java download page.
This is working fine for applets but not for javaws/javafx applications. In later case application is getting launched and java download is not getting shown to end user

Steps to reproduce:
1) install above mentioned jre bundle
2) Set system date to some future date e.g. Nov 2022
3) Try to launch any javaws application on command line or javafx application using DT webstart link
4) Native dialog should be there since JRE will be treated as insecure
5) Click on Update and if javaws or javafx application is getting launch without shwoing any java download page then bug is reproduced
Verified. After click "Update" button was loaded "Download page" on Java.com

SQE-OK to get this issue fix against 7u10
