When going to the URL, a pop-up "messenger" window appears, and after the applet loads, clicking on "enter chat" hangs the browser... though it's not very easy to understand why. Clicking on the button should load /messenger/cmd.html?op=roomList in a window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load http://www.gay.com/chat/ making sure to allow pop-ups. 2. Wait for the applet to load 3. Click on "enter chat" Actual Results: Browser hangs Expected Results: Browser does not hang; a window with a room listing is displayed. This also happens to 1.4 under Windows XP.
Just a side comment about gay.com chat, it's a POS, and so is the handling for gay.com's popup for it. Goto http://www.gayboi.net/ and use the chat client from there. I would be tempted to mark this as "wontfix" but I won't [yet]. Mozilla isn't the only browser that has issues, but I will agree that there are a lot of java issues with mozilla. For me, the java applet will load, but it just doesn't function, the room and member lists never populate. Reporter, will you please try this again with a current build of Mozilla and provide your comments about whether or not this problem still exists?
Reporter did not respond. If this is still a problem please reopen and redocument steps to reproduce.
