system description:
We have a simple html page which includes only javascript code and exactly one 
applet, with its dimensions set to width=100% and height=100%. The applet code 
resizes the browser window calling a javascript function (... self.resizeTo
(width,height); ...). This in turn should resize the applet as well.
The window is always resized correctly.
problem description:
The applet dimensions are not adapted correctly, more precise: the dimension of 
the applet beeing reduced by the window's resize operation is resized 
correctly, but the dimension of the applet, that should expand to the browser 
window size remains unchanged. Only after a reload of the page, the applet 
resizes correctly.  
We do not have this "effect" on windows platforms.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate a html page with an applet, width = 100%, height= 100%
2. add a javascript function to the page, resizing the window:
 function SizetoAx(orientation){
    var width, height, heightDiff;
    width = ... new value ...;
    height = ... new value ...;

    alert("self moved");
3. Call function SizetoAx() from within the applet and look what happens

Actual Results:  
see "detail" field

Expected Results:  
the applet's size should be adapted correctly and be of the size of innerWidht 
and innerHeigt of the browser window.

we use jre1.4 as java plugin, nothing special on HP-UX side. Browser runs 
stable and robust in our environment.

Thanks for help

Observed the same behaviour on Linux + mozilla 1.2.1 as well.

$uname -a
Linux xxxxxx 2.4.7-10smp #1 SMP Thu Sep 6 17:09:31 EDT 2001 i686 unknown
$/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla --version
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130, build 2002113015

Easy to verify/reproduce with any simple java applet as follows:

<applet code="foo.class" width="100%" height="100%"> </applet>

With the above code the, applet size will not get automatically 
resized to fit the window size when window is resized. 
It will get resized only if you reload the page.

<img src="foo.jpg" width="100%" height="100%">

While a similar "image" tag does get resized correctly 
to fit the window size without any reloading of the page.

Have you got any news concerning this bug?
We have no really good "workaround" at hand and still are looking forward for 
the solution.

This sounds like a dupe of bug 148958. I think comment #4 was meant for this bug.

Since the only possible dupe mentioned that's now marked fixed (that could have
fixed this) is itself (?), no other bug has been referred to, and no code has
been checked into this bug, there's no knowing what fixed this, so it should be
resolved as:
