Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit: http://www.e-pass.com/ 2. Then right click on the "more" link and select "Open in New Window." Actual Results: At that point, the system becomes slow and unresponsive until something is done to close Mozilla Firebird. Although I cannot actually confirm this, I believe that the CPU useage is pegging out at maximum. (The reason I say this, is because my Power Supply fan kicks in to a faster speed, which normally happens during constant 100% CPU useage.) The only way to recover the system is to close Mozilla Firebird. Sometimes the small "X" button can be clicked and the end task window will appear. At other times I have attempted to open task manager to end the process. Trying to launch task manager can take some time due to the slow system response. Expected Results: Page should display without severe system degradation.
BTW, I am using the Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition 1.4.2 Default Virtual Machine Version 1.4.2-b28 Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.2
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031002 Firebird/0.7+ Java Plug-in 1.4.2 for Netscape Navigator I was able to reproduce the slow and unresponsive behavior. After about 5 minutes the new window loaded. The java menu is the culprit. The Microsoft java eventually is interpreted by Sun's java though this is slow. fphover.class Author: Tom Blumer Created with Microsoft Visual J++ Version 1.1 Possibly reassign to tech-evangelism.

Using Firefox 0.8 final SSE2 on Athlon64 and Win XP patched, JRE 1.4.2_03 it works almost without hassle at all, but in fact I agree this page has really bad java code....
Conforming summary to TFM item 10 at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/tech-evangelism/site/procedures.html#file-new
Summary: Embedded Java causes 100% CPU useage (system becomes nearly unuseable) → e-pass.com - Embedded Java causes 100% CPU useage (system becomes nearly unuseable)
Question: Is this really the site's problem and not something that needs to be fixed in Firefox or Java? If it was, for example, an infinite loop, or whatnot, then I would agree that it would be bad coding. However, it doesn't appear to be coding issues (since the performance problem is not present in IE w/ Microsoft's Java). Thus, I would assume that this should be filed under a bug for Firefox or as something that Sun needs to fix in their Java implementation. Please reply back. I just don't want us to overlook what may be a problem in Firefox or Sun's java by simply having the site redo something to work around it.
the seems to be working with JRE1.6 U11
