The applet.jar from webcam_server (http://webcamserver.sourceforge.net/) will hang firefox if it's run with http authentication. Firefox chrome and page stop responding, the applet still displays/interacts fine. This is a problem with firefox 1.0 and the latest nightly. It is not a problem with Mozilla 1.7.5 (that comes with gnome). I haven't tested with other versions of firefox or mozilla. I have not tested with digest http authentication. Talkback ids TB3700054M, TB3699871M, and TB3699817X are from this, gotten after a force quit.
you forgot to add the used JRE version string.

Getting this bug off my lists... I think I remember years ago noticing that this was a dupe of something (possibly something invalid) relating to me having set up java in a screwy way. Or something like that. Also, I have no idea what jre version I was using, and the upstream project is dead... I'm just going to close this as incomplete and be done with it.
