The page loads very slow at http://www.asc-usi.com/ , When you try to navigate
it actually stops the browser for 10-30 seconds. I am also having the same issue
with Webmin running on my Debian Box. The file manager app takes about 2-3
minutes to load compared to 20-30 seconds in IE. Is the J2 causing this issue or
is it browser related?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to http://www.asc-usi.com/ click on the navigation bar.

Actual Results:  
browser stops won't respond for 30 seconds or more.

Expected Results:  
Change pages instantly like IE using Microsoft java.

Java bugs go to the OJI component, not JavaScript Engine.
Java and JavaScript are different things.

This site loads 13 applets with code="fphover.class" codebase="_fpclass/".
Reassigning to OJI; note these other bugs on this type of applet:

bug 111944 "JRE 1.3.1 (01a upwards) hangs with fphover.class"
bug 176280 "browser hangs as java chokes on fphover.class"
bug 202200 "Images from 'fphover' don't load in Mozilla"

I can't confirm this report, though. Using Mozilla trunk binary
2003042308 on WinNT, the site loads quickly for me, and I can
navigate with no trouble. I'm clicking on the applets, which
are called "Home", "About us", "News", etc.

CD: what Java plug-in does Mozilla show in Help > About Plug-ins?
Mine shows Java Plug-in 1.4.1.

what Java plug-in version do you use ?
Does it happen when upgrading to JRE 1.4.1_02 ?
Sun's JRE 1.3.x has known issues with the fphover.class applet.

Running Java 1.4.0_03 with 2003042304 on WinXP gives me a freeze on loading any
of the pages with that navigation bar.
