Diagnostics support for Linux Browsers


Provide Diagnostics local administration on Linux after Firefox has removed support for Java.

Local administration of Diagnostics on Linux has been provided by Firefox (and other Linux-based Internet browsers) through JVM.

Now Firefox (and other Internet browsers) has removed support for Java, which effectively denies local administration of Diagnostics on Linux. It is now only available in Internet Explorer through BSM.


We have changed Diagnostics infrastructure (Commanders and Mediators) from Windows to Linux and expected the same functionlity as on windows

There is no workaround

Provide a Diagnostics client on Linux

There is already a local client offered for Diagnostics for Linux which will allow running Diagnostics without the need for a browser.
