Nope, works fine on 2.x (but not on 3.x in my testing)

Here's what I do:

1) Download :
2) Unpack it.
3) Run: firefox/firefox
4) Connect to https:// DRAC interface
5) Click on "Console" link and follow instructions to download and install the plugin.
6) Logout/login to the DRAC interface and use the remote console.

Note: the following will be installed/created in your firefox/plugins directory:


On 3.0.1, the plugin fails to load correctly and results in a spinning hourglass on the page. 2.0.x wors just fine.
