Seen on windows with RTM 6.01, 6.1, and 6.2.1 If you click directly on the links below here, it sometimes hangs, but not always. http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/alphabullet.html http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/huebullet.html http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/dukebullet.html If you go to this url: http://java.sun.com/applets/ then look for the title "other applets", then click on the link "Bullets", it has "AlphaBullet, HueBullet, and Duke Mascot". Click one of those links, it always hangs!!! Actually, that also links you to the same full links above though. Another instance of a hang Seen on windows with RTM 6.01, 6.1, and 6.2.1 (jre 1.3.1_02) 1. Launch the above build (e.g.rtm 6.2.1) 2. Go to this url: http://google/search?q=java+applet+test&hl=en&lr= 3. Currently, there're two "Java Applet Test". Click on the first link, it hangs! The link of the first one is: http://www.kobe-yamate.ac.jp/~nagasm/java/javaroom/Wireframe/sample.html 4. Restart the browser. Click on the second link, it also hangs too.

Steve, Anything change in the update that could cause this?
Don't know. Our group doesn't handle the _XX releases. I'll forward this question on to the folks who do.
with 1.4.0 the page takes forever to load. No hang just really really long load time.
wfm using build 2002030803 on Win2k + JRE 1.4.0
(1) Using jre 1.40 with RTM 6.2.1, it takes so long to load it. I tried 20 times, and it hung 2 times. http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/huebullet.html Make sure to click 'reload, back, forward' buttons for many times to see it hangs (if you get lucky). (2) If the browser hangs, the bookmark of the above url get lost. Also, the profile got corrupted it because once you relanuch the browser using that profile, the browser hangs and need to reboot the machine for several time and it still not work. (3) Use the "new profile" then it relaunches fine again.
I used windows 98.
WFM with Sun's jre 1.4.0rc on RedHat 6.2 BTW, i got hang on one of these pages with Netscape 4.x and Sun's 1.3.1 plugin -> likely to by pure [jpibug]
This has been files in Sun's bug tracking system. Bugtraq: 4657759
I looked the bug on JRE 1.4.x and could reproduce it. The bottleneck appears in the Java native call into native windowing system, such as create native window and set position, etc. And there is an interesting behavior. Start Mozilla browser -> start Microsoft Spy + -> Find browser window and monitor its message -> go to the testing URL and the bottleneck disappears.

OK, the Bugscape Bug mentioned above by mdunn is distinct from the problem at hand. The Bugscape Bug above (Bugscape 12953) mentions a hang on iPix applets, which could well be caused by the IBM Byte Code Optimizer rathole (also documented in bug 85710 ).
I think this problem is related to message loop. Starting an applet is much slower with Mozilla, but whenever you use Spy ++ to spy the browser window's client area, will speed up the applet. Mozilla people, please comment this behavior. Thanks
Zhengyu, why does 1.3.1_02 and later show this problem, but NOT previous JREs? For example, 1.3.1 doesn't show this problem, and I think 1.3.0_01 doesn't show this problem. I'm not denying that Mozilla could have a problem, but could you explain why older JREs don't show this problem, but only newer ones?
I would like to add : The same mozilla build from 2 months ago which works fine with jre1.3.1 stops working when jre1.3.1 is removed and jre 131_02 is installed and used.
I am taking a look at this now.
A work around has been implemented in JRE 1.4.1 to fix the problem, may back port to JRE 1.3.x.
also hangs on windows 98,(branch build: 2002-05-15-08-1.0.0) and (2002-05-12-20-XX-PR1) with the following url: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/oji/test10.html
I forgot to mention the version of jre. I used JRE 1.4.0_01.
The browser was also hung when running IE, going to: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/oji/test10.html. So far, it seems the test case only runs OK on Solaris, which runs with a later version of JRE 1.4 (later than the one downloading for Windows and Linuxs). Trying to get a new version of JRE to test on Windows and Linux, to see if that fix the problem.
Tried with JRE 1.4.1 beta, the applets seemed loaded, but no "dancing" letters. The pr0blem seemed not fixed completely in JRE 1.4.1. Re-assign to jim's Java plugin group.

I tested dancing letters applet with 1.4.1 beta b13, could not reproduce the problem. Joe, can you confirm that?
I tried the test case on comment #17 with ns7pr1 and JRE 1.4.1 b11. Still could not see the dancing charictors in the applets (except the first largest one). Tried to install JRE1.4.1 b14 (the only one I could find in Sun's internal server), but had trouble in the installation (kept getting errors). Zhangyu, if you verify that the problem has been fixed, then mark it fixed in 1.4.1, and QA will test it when 1.4.1 becomes available to the public.
Add Zhangyu to the cc list.
Tried the test case in comment #17 with JRE 1.4.1 b13, still could not see the dancing letters in the applets, except the first one. The result is the same as JRE 1.4.0_01. Did not seem to see the work-around's impact. Zhangyu, did you try the test case in comment #17? If so, did you see the dancing letters in all the black rectengles, besides the first one?
Joe, Jim and I all tested http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/oji/test10.html, it worked fine.
Based on comment #25, resolving as fixed.

Windows 2000 (netscape branch build: 2002-08-07-08-TRUNK) (1) Jre 1.4.1 fixes the problem on comment #25, it loads quick without hanging, also, all the dancing letters appear in all the black rectangles, but using jre 1.4.0_01, it sometimes hangs or loads very slow, and the dancing letters seem to appear only the first one. (2) Using jre 1.4.1 and run those urls below, it loads very quick. http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/alphabullet.html http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/huebullet.html http://java.sun.com/applets/other/Bullets/dukebullet.html

Oops, I enter the wrong build. It should be windows 2000 (netscape branch build: 2002-08-07-08-1.0)
