Using the daily (9/27/99) Mozilla build on Windows NT, and jdk1.3. This bug also occurs in Mozilla M9 build on MAC using the MRJ Plugin. To reproduce, - Bring up the apprunner/viewer. - Load any of these applets that use lightweight components. http://passage/browser/src/Applets/Misc/html/awt-1.1/lightweight/Gauge/example.html http://passage/browser/src/Applets/Misc/html/awt-1.1/lightweight/OpenlookButtons/example.html http://passage/browser/src/Applets/Misc/html/awt-1.1/lightweight/RoundButtons/example.html http://passage/browser/src/Applets/Misc/html/awt-1.1/lightweight/Spinner/example.html - Load another applet from the list. Notice that the html page changes, but the applet that is shown is the first one. This is the same with other applets in the list. It seems that the first applet never gets destroyed. Because of this, you need to quit the browser to load the succeeding applet, which is very bad.
Mark Lin no longer works for Sun. Reassigning his bugs to George Drapeau

could i please get an external URL to these pages? thanks, loki
Raju: I'm adding you to this bug's CC: list so you can help get Loki the tests. I'm guessing Leila is busy, as it's no longer her job.
this functions correctly under the mac platform with v. 1.1eqd2 plugins... very interestingly however, they appear to obey scrolling as well, where as the heavy weight applets do not (which is lumped under bug 7366). thanks for the pointer raju!
I'm going to push this off to the next milestone, to give others time to work on crashers, etc. In the mean time, Raju, does this error occur on the Windows Java Plug-In as well? The bug was reported for Solaris only, but I don't know if this occurs on Windows as well.

Target Milestone: --- → M17
Yes it does occur on Windows Tried this on WinNT4.0 SP5 with M15 with internal Plugin and Netscape Preview 1 with bundled plugin
Looks like it is a Codebase problem If I try the external URL http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/docs/guide/awt/demos/lightweight/ It does show up correctly. If u look at the HTML sources, it does not have a codebase entry. However if u try the http://passage/browser/src/Applets/Misc/html/awt-1.1/lightweight/ examples it will however exhibit the problem reported in the bug. If u view the source, the only difference is that it has an extra codebase entry. Looks like it is not able to resolve that entry correctly.
OS: Solaris → All
Hardware: Other → PC
Whiteboard: [please attach a copy of that page, sanitize if necessary]
Per Addt'l Comments From email@example.com 2000-05-16 10:54 marking PC/All I'm guessing that this problem is actually All/All [ie Mac too] based on Addt'l Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 2000-05-22 13:18. If someone inside sun.com wants to assert All/ by testing Mac that's nice. Otherwise, it would be really helpful to mozilla.org if a http://passage/browser/src/Applets/Misc/html/awt-1.1/lightweight/ was attached to the bug.

This is the classic problem of the Netscape 6 implementation of the applet lifecycle. Apparently, when the browser encounters an applet, it will init/start it, and caches it after the page switch. However, when it encounters another applets which has similar codebase/params, instead of creating a new applet, it tries to find any stopped applet in its cache. In this case, it thought it found the right one and restarted it. This is why the same applet keeps showing up even a different page is encountered. This problem will go away with the applet lifecycle fix by Ed. I will reassign this bug to Ed.

Using Netscape_20000922 branch pulled at 11pm on 10/2 and Java Plugin from /usr/local/java/jdk1.3.0_01-beta_refresh-2/bundles at 9am on 10/3, I find this bug no longer manifests. Therefore I'm marking it fixed.

Leilag, can you pls verify this bug for me. I do not have access to the 'lonely' server testcases.Thanx.
QA Contact: shrir → leilag
I just verified this on Win NT/98 with latest nightly build of mozilla and FCS jre bits. It does load all applets appropriately. Fixed.
Verified per rpallath's comments.
