No, i was talking about Netscape for Linux. First time when i run the online banking in netscape a
jar became downloaded from the server. After i allowed installing the jar as normal user an install
error occured.

The reason is that the jar is installed in the directory /opt/netscape/java/download. This directory
is not writable for a normal user.

When i run the installation as root the problem does not exist. After the jar  is installed i can
manage my bank accounts as normal user.
