Mac osx java seems completely brokn in the 1.3 release.  I used it
regularly in previous releases.   Java is enabled in the preferences,
but "java console" is greyed out in developer tools, and no java applets
are active.  Java applications from desktop and applets from IE
are still working fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to any java page, note that there is no java

(Also WFM using Moz 1.3.)

no change with build 2003031408

previous traffic suggests this is related to java 1.4.1 support (lack
thereof) combined with running osx 10.1 vintage.

I'm also having lots of crashes lately, since a week or so. I'm not using Java a
lot, so it could have been caused by an earlier change, or it could have been
caused by the Java 1.4.1 download (which was supposed to be harmless), which I
did on March 11th (2200 GMT). I started nothing the crashes the day afterwards,
but that might be becuase I was trying to test more intensively for Java (untill
I noted that Mozilla wasn't using the new plugin anyway).

At the moment, I'm using a nightly "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X
Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030313" on Mac OS X 10.2.4. Java 1.4.1 in installed.

Mozilla still uses the Java 1.3.1 plugins, and it's so indicated on the "About
plugins" page. Java 1.4.1 shouldn't be used at all. Clearing the Java-cache
doesn't help.

I have repeatable crashes on this page :
Talkback-ID : TB203148H

I also have another talkback-ID (TB202338E) which might be different. In that
case I saw that an applet from 1 tab was appearing on another tab, and I crashed
when I tried to close them. But that might be unrelated.

Dave, can you also reproduce this problem using OS X 10.2?

I have the same problems with MRJ 1.4.1 with Moz 1.4b on OS 10.2.6. (Mozilla/5.0
(Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507).  Another
example page is - the radar images don't appear.

I take back my last comment (#11) - it appears that Java is working again on the
same site.  (  I did delete and re-install the same build of
Mozilla last night, which may have done something for it.

reports of this bug have been a bit confused.
However, the situation is pretty clear to me :
Java is completely broken on MacOS X 10.1 (and MacOS X Server 10.1) with Mozilla versions 1.3 to 
1.6. The same bug arise for recent Camino nightly builds (based on these versions of Mozilla).

The system requirements for Mozilla 1.6 (as seen on are wrong: Mozilla does not fully 
support MacOS X 10.1.

It is fairly easy to test, so why is this still UNCONFIRMED ?!?

Does this bug only effect OS X 10.1?
