From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; es-ES; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011 BuildID: 2001101117 When Quick Launch is activated, if java gets loaded, it will remain loaded after closing all windows. I think it should be unloaded from memory after all mozilla windows are closed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a url that requires Java (Java conlose appears in the tray) 2.Close all mozilla windows 3. Actual Results: The Java console is still in the tray and Mozila.exe uses a lot of memory. Expected Results: Unload the Java stuff from memory
yup, same thing happens for me... until you exit mozilla, _completely_... including quick launch

I can not reproduce this on win2k and linux with jre1.3.1. If i close all windows except java console then console window is closed too. However java console item may stay in tray until tray will be refreshed (i.e. if i move mouse over java console icon then it will gone). Hovewer, i see no java or mozilla running at this time. Which version of java plugin did you use?
Oops, forgot to enable quick launch last time. Now i can reproduce it. However, I am not sure whever this can be done. As far as i understand in quick launch mode mozilla does not really free any memory. In particular it stores parsed representation for already fetched pages. As a consequence some objects there may refere to java objects (e.g. liveconnect stuff, etc.) We can not simply unload java without letting these object know about this. Also if after subsequent start user will visit such (visited before) page again then mozilla will not rebuild object tree and will show it as is causing java-related stuff to not work as expected. i guess it will be much more realistic to implement if mozilla will deallocate page cache when last window is closed. See also bug 78159
same behaviour on Windows NT with Mozilla 1.0rc1
this has been open for over a year.... is anyone working on it? if not, perhaps it's a good place for me to try to get involved in oss.... :)
reassign to me

Summary: Java console remains loaded after all windows closed → Java console remains loaded after all windows closed because of quick launch
Hi, Reporter: Did close all instance of Netscape?
Joshua, I think he did close all the windows. But quick launch still there so the plugin will not be destroy.
So this shouldn't be a bug, because JPI is still working when there is still netscape instance
I think this bug should be closed, and I don't know who is in charge of doing it. I reported this bug, but since Mozilla 1.1 (I think) when the last window is closed (and last window can be browser, mail, download manager, etc.), quick launch is restarted (actually restarting mozilla) and thus, killing the java console and freeing up memory. I tested this in W2000; I don't know about the other platforms Regards
Unix platforms don't have quick launch. But I'm not sure Mac
