plug-in new window will flash before it change posisition to go behing the main
window, and will remain behind the main window.
size of window to hold the plug-in is wrong
occasional crash when playing back plug-ins.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand this bug report.

Could you please review the Bug Writing Guidelines, and provide more information?

1) the shockwave movie is loaded into a new window via javascript mouse click
handler on an image. The window created was made visible at first (which causes
the flash), and then made invisible and move to a position with top-left
overlapping the main apprunner window. But the shockwave window remain behind
the apprunner window. User needs to manually move the new flash window to the

2) the window created should nicely fit the shockwave movie (i.e. no scroll bars
as in NS 4.0). But window created by apprunner has both vertical and horizonta;
scroll bars.

3) not sure the stability anymore as the one I tried out was ~20/09.

Mike, I am reassigning this to you since I beleive it is JavaScript related. The
window is created before any frame construction code is called. Could you please
have a look and suggest who would be the right person to handle the bug?

Roger, can you look at this?

It may still need recategorization.

Nope, I just don't see the JS engine connection on this one. The event state
manager makes the call to reset the focus to the initial window after it can't
find anything focusable during postHandleEvent. (Is the plugin window not
responding appropriately?)

Mass-moving bugs out of M15 that I won't get to.  Will refit individual 
milestones after moving them.
Target Milestone: M15 → M16
I don't see any shockwave movie load on this page.
Still usable, not beta2
Target Milestone: M16 → M17
Based on age, changed test case, and much new window control code in the last 
six months I'm gonna have to go with WORKSFORME here.
