I don't see a Java applet on the page. wfm with linux build 20020608 and 1.0 release Thomas: if no one else can reproduce this, you might need to construct a testcase that hangs for you. (save the page locally and whittle it down)

I think I found the problem. It's not Mozilla (not alone at least). I'm using eDexter (an ad blocker) which in this case blocks akamai-sites (which redirects to some lycos-hosted scripts). (eDexter redirects the requests to 127.0.0.1.) It seems that the combination of blocking these akamai-sites and permitting the script generate the hang. If I don't permit the script OR don't block the site a284.g.akamai.net i get no hang. I have now removed involved akamai-sites from the blocking list (and the script doesn't seems to be activated - no question from AtGuard now !?). (The hang is generated also with Java 1.4.1.01 and with IE 5.0 and Netscape 4.77. I attach a stripped down - but still "hangable" html - if You have eDexter and are curious... The script that do the hang: http://a284.g.akamai.net/f/284/987/12h/hb.lycos.com/html_js/headerLayer.js )

In fact, from the reporter's comment above: > The hang is generated also with Java 1.4.1.01 and with IE 5.0 and Netscape 4.77. Thomas, thank you for your careful testing of this! Based on your findings, I'm going to resolve this as WORKSFORME. As you suggest, it sounds like a problem with the eDexter software itself. I'm also adding a notation to bug 147021 referencing this bug -
