Description Don Russell 2003-10-14 00:03:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031009

Description of problem:
I installed Sun JRE 1.4.2
Then I added the link to point to the plugin:
as root, from directory /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins
I entered this command...
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so .

I then tried to go to my network switch (HP2424M) which runs a java applet
interface... I saw the message saying Java Applet loading.... then nothing... no
further page activity.

I then wento chat.yahoo.com and tried logging in.
When it got to the point of loading the chat applet, the browser suddenly closed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mozilla 1.4.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to go a web page with a java aplet

Actual Results:  Java applet does not run, browser may crash

Expected Results:  I expect the java aplet to run and be able to use the web page.

Additional info:

I understand you can't actually include the jre, but once it is installed it
should work...

I have the link in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and can view java applets
successfully, so maybe it is something you have done wrong (my mozilla is 1.4.1-7).

Well, oddly enough, I tried going to my switch (http://switch address) again....
there was a long delay which made me think it wasn't working.... and then Poof!
it started up...

The only thing I can think of is that I did not properly shutdown/restart
Mozilla after I defined the link. (Maybe another window was still open, but
minimized, I THOUGHT I did... and since then and now I've rebooted the machine

So, the good news ... it's working now.... though the delay was several (5-10)

Closing/restarting the browser now... my switch page comes up very quickly...
something about that first time I guess.
