When the main news page is loaded, the applet appears in the correct position, but when the page is scrolled, instead of being scrolled out of view, the applet stays at the top of the scrolled view and covers page content. This causes major painting problems. This problem appears to be specific to Mac OS X because I know that it doesn't occur on Linux and I don't think it occurs on Windows either. I don't think that it is a recent regression because it occurs in both the latest mozilla trunk builds and in Chimera. I don't have much of an idea about where the problem is, but I don't think it's just a gfx problem because the applet continues to update its content and repaint itself in its incorrect location. I don't think it's an OS bug either because the applet works fine on IE.
email@example.com, what build ID are you reporting this bug against?
It's in Build ID: 2002091908, but it's been in builds as far back as I can remember. It's also in Chimera 0.5 which I think is based on mozilla 1.0.1.
Confirmed using FizzillaCFM/2002091014 on 10.1.5. I wonder if there's a dup to be found. To Plug-ins or OJI?

Chris: can you verify this one?
Yes, this is a problem on both OS X 10.2.1 and 10.1.5 when scrolling the page. Resizing the page under 10.2.1 will cause applet to reposition over the application's toolbar. Tested with 2002-10-17-08 trunk.
Chris: does this happen with any object (img, plug-in) or does it happen only with applet?

Seems fixed in 2002122004
