Description of problem:
Mozilla hangs each time I access a web site with a Java applet. I have to kill
-9 mozilla and the java_vm processes to recover.

java-1.4.2-sun- (Sun SDK repackaged by JPackage group; see
libjavaplugin_oji.so ->

The applet will begin to start when the page with the applet is opened. If the
java console is open it will begin to display logging info. After a few seconds
mozilla and the java console freeze. The CPU pegs at 100%.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

1. Open mozilla.
2. Go to web page with applet.


Actual Results:  Mozilla freezes.

I'm able to reproduce this as well.
Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2003-09-03 10:31:23 EDT
Do you have a stack trace of where it's hanging?  Is it in the mozilla code or
is it in the JVM plugin?

Since I don't have the source to the JVM I can't really provide support for it.

Closing due to inactivity. Please feel free to reopen this bug or refile this
bug against the latest release Fedora Core if you feel this bug is still
relevant today.

Thank you
