Java 8 Update 60 & "Edit This File" Performance

When using Internet Explorer 10 and Java 8 Update 60, using the "Edit This File" function to edit a Vibe document is taking about a minute and a half to open the document. It will hang the browser during this wait period.

What I've tried:


  • Reverting the Java version back to Java 8 Update 51. Fixes the issue, but obviously this is not desirable since Java 8 Update 60 patches security vulnerabilities.
  • Having Vibe Add-In installed/Not installed. Experiences the issue either way.
  • Running Firefox ESR and Java 8 Update 60. Does not experience the issue.
  • Running Internet Explorer 11 and Java 8 Update 60. Does not experience the issue.
  • Tweaking or disabling Java 8 Update 60 advanced security settings. Still experiencing issue no matter what setting I disable (such as "Perform signed code certificate revocation checks on" = "Do not check", etc.)


Has anyone else experienced this issue and found a solution (besides downgrading Java)?

Environment:
Server: Vibe 4.0 HP 3, SLES 11
Workstation: Windows 7 SP1 Professional, Internet Explorer 10

It is not the same issue. Java security settings have no effect on the problem.

Re: Java 8 Update 60 & "Edit This File" Performance

Stil the same problem here.
With Vibe4HP4, IE11 and java plugin 1.8.071, it lasts about 15 seconds before Word or Excel opens with the selected document.
With FF42.0 and the same version java plugin it lasts less then a second to open a document!

All the settings suggested in this thread so far do not give a positive result.

Anyone have a solution???
