User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212 This site, created in MS-Frontpage, works with Netscape and Internet Explorer (better with IE, but...). However, Mozilla freezes before the front page ever comes up, and if any other instances of Mozilla are open before or after this site is attempted, all instances freeze and must be aborted. Looks like a compatibility problem to me. If the browser won't support such sites it is of limited usefulness, as there are many such sites out there. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Mozilla 2.Enter http://www.taylorsowers.info 3.Wait (apparently forever?) Actual Results: Mozilla freezes and has to be ab-ended. Expected Results: Displayed the page like Netscape or IE will. Site does work better with IE but Netscape will at least display the page. All Mozilla defaults (have changed nothing). Please don't respond with "You should not develop a site in MS-Frontpage". That's not relevant. What is relevant is that any browser which wants to capture any part of the browser market and be a serious contender *has* to be MS-Frontpage compatible. Ok, no "serious" web developer would use Frontpage (?) but many such sites exist, including this, the site I put together for our friends and family about our daughter's cancer. With Web-TV, which could not show the buttons, at least it brought up the main page and then a Web-TV user could choose the Text-only version of the site. Mozilla can't seem to get that far, at least as far as how long I've tried to wait for it to pull up the site. Too bad. Looks like a pretty good effort at a browser (rather Netscape-like in some ways, though, isn't it?)
Reporter: Which JRE Do you use ? (see help/about:plugins) wfm with win2k and todays build and JRE1.4.1
Installed JRE 1.4.1_01. Had 1.3. Site is now functional. Browser should check for current version of JRE and warn user to upgrade or do it automatically. Users should not have to independently monitor JRE's version nor have to think about compatibility of it with the browser. 99% of users are not savvy enough to do that, so this browser's audience is very limited.
Ask Sun why they had this bug in their old JRE. We can't add a message for each possible plugin and many user still want their old version. But we have the release notes : "Java J2SE releases previous to 1.3.0_01 will not work with Mozilla. Problems have been reported with JRE 1.3.1. For best results JRE 1.4.1 is recommended." And the you must do thius before you add a bug report : (please for the next one :-) ) Read the Release notes Search for exisiting bugs. Nice that it works now -> wfm
