Autostarting .jnlp files via Safari 6.0.3 doesn't work (6.0.2 does autostart .jnlp files), file gets downloaded but no autostart (Enable Webstart is however enabled in Java prefs).

Using Chrome does autostart these .jnlp files.

Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website could allow a Java Web Start application to be launched automatically even if the Java plug-in is disabled


Description: Java Web Start applications would run even if the Java plug-in was disabled. This issue was addressed by removing JNLP files from the CoreTypes safe file type list, so the Web Start application will not be run unless the user opens it in the Downloads directory.
