It was defined that the bug is a regression of the fix for the bug JDK-8027203, because: - The bug could not be reproduced with JRE 7 compiled from the source code, whose revision equals revision of the fix for the bug JDK-8027203 -1. - The bug could be reproduced with JRE 7 compiled from the source code with revision of the fix for the bug JDK-8027203. Also the bug was reproduced with JRE 9 b11 by means of the attached test case.

The test case was substituted for the version which allows to reproduce the bug with JRE 9 also.

The bug was reproduced with the attached test case "TrimmedTextInJavaScriptToJavaWarning.zip" on OS X 10.9.1, both Firefox 28.0 and Safari browsers with JRE 7u55 b13, JRE 8u5 b13. However no JavaScript to Java security warning dialog is shown on JRE 9 b09, which is currently the latest promoted JRE 9.
