We noticed a problem today where some of the java games in neoppets do not display correctly. They seem to be playable, but the placement of objects are off. I originally though that this was a problem with either the java or mozilla's rendering engine, but when we tried it again using Mozilla 1.0.1, the problem was not there. The problem also does not occure in the Galeon on Linux. I'm not sure exactly where the fluke is, but it is only reproducable in Pheonix. The Pheonix version is 0.2 I don't know how to get to the specific games in neopets where the problem is occuring (and i know you need a user account), it is installed on a users computer who has been willing to attempt an Open Source replacement to several programs.
Testing mozilla 1.0.1 is not sufficient to rule out this being a Mozilla problem. There have been tens of thousands of lines of code changed on the trunk since 1.0.1. These are the builds to use when testing to see if it's a Mozilla or a Phoenix problem http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk/
Also you need to ensure that the same version of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment plugin) is running in Phoenix and in Mozilla, as badly-written code that works in Java 2 1.4.0 can break in the latest JRE, 1.4.1 (as I have found out myself)
I think this is now a worksforme using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021023 Phoenix/0.3 I know the bug that the reporter was talking about... flash games wouldn't display, for any game you chose you'd end up getting a blank screen (loading the url in a fresh start of phoenix would work, but not in the popup windows). But for some reason it works perfectly using the newer phoenix builds, and I havn't seen any flash bugs at all recently. Hopefully someone else can confirm running into this bug as well, and that it now works.
resolving as worksforme.
