Clicking to a couple of the games where Java loads results in the page not
loading and a browser freeze with "end program" (no talkback).

If I turn Java off there's no crash and the pages load and function as expected.

To replicate:
1. go to http://www.pbskids.org
2. Click "caillou" or "teletubbies"

Platform: Has only been replicated in Windows 2000.
Replicatability: 100% in all recent builds and embedded browsers

Note: Per http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108601#c24 

http://pbskids.org/caillou/ doesn't call a 
java function in the onload-event-handler directly but sets a timer. After the 
timer expires (5 sec. on that page) a javascript function is called which then 
calls a java function.

Couldn't reproduce on Linux Rh 7.1 on trunk build (20020315). 
Try to apply patch for bug #106253.

I tried it on Win2000 with Mozilla099 and JRE 1.4 (downloaded from
java.sun.com/j2se), and it seemed working fine (able to load pbskids.org/cailou
and teletubbies). 

Reporter, what version of mozilla and JRE did you use?

Java Plug-in 1.3.1_02
on Windows 2000. Crashes 099 and 094

I downloaded the new JRE but don't know how to install it to get it to work, to
test. Maybe other people can try to replicate your result...

To make the 1.4 JRE work with mozilla 0.9.9, one quick way is to copy the java
plugin dll from the 1.4 JRE (i.e.,
programfiles/javasoft/jre/1.4/bin/NPOJI610.dll) to the plugin directory (i.e.,

I also tried it with JRE 1.3.1_02, and reproduced the hung problem. But then
when I copied the JRE 1.4  dll over, it worked. It looks like the problem has
been fixed in JRE 1.4.

Susie, could you try it with JRE 1.4 and see what happens?

I have JRE 1.3.1_02 on my Win2K machine and the site works fine with today's
Trunk build 2002040803.   Could this problem have been fixed?  Either from our
end or the website itself?

Well, I don't know what to mark the bug since I don't see a pattern really with
other people being able to replicate this.

For me, crashes on Windows 2000 on all recent builds with 1.3.1_02

-JRE 1.4 with 3/22 and 4/4 builds
-JRE 1.3.1_02 in 0.9.9 embedded browser pulled from 3/27
