Still present in
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021114

If 'prompt("text1", "text2");' is entered as a command in the
javascript-console, it works fine! It does not work, if 
'javascrip:prompt("text1", "text2");' ist entered as a url in TestGtkEmbed.
It also does not work, if 'javascrip:prompt("text1", "text2");' is a
part of a HTML-document.

If also works if a chrome ist loaded in TestGtkEmbed
(eg. chrome://navigator/component/navigator.xul) and
'javascript:prompt("text1", "text2");' is entered afterwards in
the URL-Filed of TestGtkEmbed.

Is this an initialisation problem?

I can confirm this for gtkmozembed from 1.02, 1.2, 1.2.1, 1.3a, 1.3, and 1.4 RC1
and RC2 (basically, it hasn't worked since 1.0).  Is any progress being made on
this?
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

The bug is still there - with the exact same sequence to reproduce it -
in our product built on top of Mozilla 1.7.8 distribution.

our application uses gtk and not gtk2. 
embedding framework is different in gtk vs. gtk2.

switching to gtk2 is not a feasible option for us.
