Hushmail is a popular Web-based e-mail service that offers more security
features than other choices.
They use SSL to safeguard the network connect and also a Java applet
that loads on the client and manages the e-mails.
This combination of Java + SSL seems to be too heavy for Mozilla, various versions. 
I verified that it does not work with Mozilla 0.9.4.
I am not sure if it worked with a previous version, I believe it did not work
with 0.9.x.

When you connect to your Hushmail account, you need to
1. enter an upgrade procedure for your key-pair, if you had made an account
before July 2001.
2. go directly and view your e-mails (for new accounts or those that have
carried out the transfer)

In both situations, when the password is gived, the Java applet freezes,
freezing all Mozilla instances.

To verify, try the following username/password combinations for each type:
1. When the transfer between the new type of keys is still pending
   username: auto25064
   password: bugzilla
2. For new accounts (the common case)
   username: auto2204
   bugzilla: bugzilla
Solving this problem will fix others that have to do with e-banking
where again they use big Java apps over SSL.

Such a banking WWW site that freezes when it tries to load its Java applet
is Natwest Bank (access through https://www.nwolb.co.uk). You do not need an
account to test this :), just click the "Login" link that tries to load the Java
applet. It will freeze before asking username/password.
