More to toolbar icons graying out

Are you using Discoverer 10.1.2 with the Sun Java 1.5 plug-in? If so, you may have experienced one or more of the following:
  • Not being able to use a list of values dialog.
  • Not being able to enter a workbook name in the 'save' or 'save as' dialog without switching to another application and coming back.
  • Message about the Digital Signature / Digital Certificate being expired.
  • Time Fields always shown as zeros (0) in Plus/Viewer.
  • Color picker not working correctly.
  • Toolbar icon greying out intermittently.
