Verified on x86 Win 7(sp1) with the latest live http://java.com/js/deployJava.js
Did you try the deployJava.js from http://java.com/js/deployJava.js?
As far as I know, the fixed version is in the jdk8/deploy/deploy repo and is live in the above url, but not in the jdk8/jdk8/deploy repo.
Still can reproduce it using jre8 b118

SQE-OK to get this issue fixed for jdk8
