Using the 11.23.98a builds of Viewer & XP Viewer (checked on Win98 & NT 4): 1. Go to www.apple.com 2. Select any of the destinations at the bottom of the page (I tried "Support", "Design and Publishing", and "Developer" 3. Hit the "Back" button. Upon reaching the http://www.apple.com/main/maps/navbar2.map "page", the viewer goes down. (Talkback ID for crashing on "Design and Publishing" is KWV14ZVC) *** Please note that this crash is only occuring on Win98; can't reproduce on NT 4. ***
I take that back. Talkback ID KWU23JYH using XPViewer on NT 4. ;)
This doesn't seem to crash anymore, but pressing the back button causes the viewer to display a page claiming that imagemap coordinates were not sent.
Since there is no crash, I've removed the "stop-ship" tag. I'm reassigning this one to you, tom, because it seems to be a double-event dispatch. I've attached a simple test case (you will have to substitute in your own images) that demonstrates the bug: because the image-map image is in an A tag, we end up double link-triggering when we click on one of the map spots. The result in the viewer is that we go to the A tag's location first and then we go to the image maps location second. So for a momemnt the display looks right; but as soon as you hit the back button the double trip is exposed.

[Using the 1.27.99 builds, Viewer will now take the user to the apple/macosx page upon pressing the "Back" button, rather than returning the user to the www.apple.com page. Communicator 4.5 RTM, of course, returns the user directly to www.apple.com]
Setting all current Open Critical and Major to M3
Not a priority, as viewer is going away; but the underlying issue needs to be fixed.
[The 4.13.99 M4 candidate on Mac OS, Linux and Win32 (using Apprunner) do not display any user-evident manifestation of this bug, should it still be present. Specifically, one can press the "Back" button without crashing or any errors, in the scenario described in the bug report.]
Yeah, I've been putting this one off because it hasn't reproduced for me either. If no one else is seeing it either I'm marking it fixed.
Thanks. (I'll check this more thoroughly today or on Monday, and then mark as Verified if appropriate.)
Sure. Verifying as fixed. (Can't reproduce on the 4.16.99 optimized builds on either Mac OS, Linux, or Win NT 4.0 SP3.)
