MacOSX/Carbon Netscape/Safari PlugIn Not Recognized - Mac Programming

Hello, I have written a Carbonized Netscape PlugIn which works fine under Internet Explorer 5.2.2 and MacOS 10.2.6. However when I try it with Netscape 7.1 or Safari the plugin fails to be called. Although it is listed in the PlugIns section of the Help Menu. I have just made an ordinary file (not a package) and dropped in the Internet PlugIns folder in the Library folder. Anyone have any idea why IE work and the others don't? I went into the preferences "Helper Apps" section and forced it to point to the PlugIn. Any ideas? Seems funny it works ...

    Default MacOSX/Carbon Netscape/Safari PlugIn Not Recognized

    Hello,

    I have written a Carbonized Netscape PlugIn which works fine under Internet
    Explorer 5.2.2 and MacOS 10.2.6. However when I try it with Netscape 7.1 or
    Safari the plugin fails to be called. Although it is listed in the PlugIns
    section of the Help Menu.

    I have just made an ordinary file (not a package) and dropped in the Internet
    PlugIns folder in the Library folder.

    Anyone have any idea why IE work and the others don't? I went into the
    preferences "Helper Apps" section and forced it to point to the PlugIn.

    Any ideas? Seems funny it works in IE but not the others.

    Thanks in advance

    Does it hit any breakpoints/DebugStrs along the way?

    I have the same exact problem. It's a big problem, and I've filed bugs with
    Apple on this.
