Tested in Safari 3.0 and 3.1 on Windows XP...
OggHandler currently detects the Java plugin in Safari for Windows even when it's not present. The player thus defaults to attempting to load the Cortado applet, which then pops up a big ol' dialog box prompting to download Java.
QuickTime mode can work... more or less... if XiphQT components are installed.

Is this still an issue on modern safari?
I can still reproduce this on Windows 8 with Safari 5.1.7 and Java uninstalled.
However it looks like Apple is phasing out Safari for Windows; there's no version 6 and it's not advertised on http://www.apple.com/safari anymore. So we can probably kill this off as a WONTFIX.
The OggHandler extension is not under active development anymore. It is unlikely that there will be any further active development.
OggHandler has been superseded by TimedMediaHandler:
Please use TimedMediaHandler instead.
Closing this report as WONTFIX as part of Bugzilla Housekeeping.
Please feel free to reopen this bug report in the future if either anyone takes the responsibility for active development of OggHandler again; or move this bug report from the "OggHandler" to the "TimedMediaHandler" component in Bugzilla if the same problem still happens when using TimedMediaHandler. Thanks.
