WFM , no crash

Probably older Sun Java version

Uninstall your older sun Java version and install Sun Java JRE1.5

Using JRE version 1.5.0_01 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

Hi guys.
I have JRE 1.5 latest version , so it is not the latest version. 

I downloaded the page at the URL reported. It contains an applet indeed. I 
took out the applet the page is loaded OK. 
So it's clear the applet is to blame. 

However I think FF should catch the error raised by the JRE and display an 
error. As I said it shuts down without warning. 
The installation was quite normal. I will try on a different computer.

see for help with your plugin installation.

As to your other point, there's a bug out [search bugzilla for a bug that
mozilla should tolerate plugin malfunction.] for giving an error/warning message
instead of going down. [don't have the number handy here]

i hope this helps.
Marking wfm as far as this bug goes.
