When logging into Credit Union Australia's Web Banker, the fullscreen javascript
popup page loads and the embedded internet banking applet starts to load. The
applet says Connecting...Please Wait. And it never gets any further than this. I
have tried Mozilla/Firebird/FireFox on different platforms
(windows/redhat/xandros etc) and on different hardware configs, exact same
problem (using the latest sun java + registry patch obviously). MS's IE 5/6 and
KDE's Konqueror work perfectly fine with this applet (using the same sun java
version). On IE/Konqueror it briefly shows the connecting please wait message
but loads up the login screen shortly after. I think this is a bug in mozilla's
java implementation and especially since I need to use a registry patch for
mozilla, firebird and firefox to see java even exists.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.log onto  (Credit Union Australia's Website)
2.Click on Log In Web Banker (this loads a javascript popup box)
3.Watch the embedded java applet never gets any further.

Actual Results:  
Never gets any further, exact same results.

Expected Results:  
Continued loading up the java applet and presented the login screen within the
java applet itself.

Mozilla/Firebird/Firefox do not crash, the java applet simply does not continue
to load up, using different themes does not matter as I think this is simply a
small error in the java implementation of the mozilla project. Other internet
banking java applets *do* work such as Commonwealth Australia's Internet Banking
and ANZ Internet Banking.

Reporter said via email that "Firefox 0.93 and Java 1.4.2._05-b04 work fine with's web applet! I believe this is the first 'new' version that it
works fine with! This is on windows 2000, sp4. I believe it is a universal fix. "

So mark WFM.
