User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1

When I connect to any page that uses Java's livconnect, the browser hangs anf
firefox shows 80-90% CPU usage for 30 seconds to a minute while thousands (no
exaggeration, three thousand and up!) of these messages are issued over and
over. When FF hangs on this condition, can't close firefox without using task
manager to end program. 
Messages(Java console trace level = 5 to view messages);

liveconnect: JavaScript: UniversalBrowserRead enabled 
liveconnect: JavaScript: UniversalJavaPermission enabled

liveconnect: JavaScript: UniversalJavaPermission enabled 
liveconnect: JavaScript: UniversalBrowserRead enabled ... ad nauseum 

The sites, all mainstream stuff, range from NOAA's radar loops to IBM's PC
pages, Flychicago's Midway airport hotel virtual tours, in short too many to
list. I've found none that worked if liveconnect was used. I determined this by
setting trace=5 in the Java console. 

I've removed and reinstalled FF including blowing out the program folders. 
( Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041112 Firefox/1.0 ) 
Removed and reinstalled Java, installing within Firefox and from the Firefox page. 
I've also loosened up the security settings to allow everything and it makes no
difference. 


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set trace=5 in Java console to see the messages 
2. Go to links below and load the Java objects
***
From NOAA - just about any java weather loop yields the same situation 

Weather.gov, enter ZIP 43143, click Radar and satellite images, click any loop.

IBM's notebook pages where you click to get a 3D image to rotate with your mouse
button; IBM.com, products, notebooks, select a series, click on the picture to
get the java image.

Actual Results:  
Browser hangs. Can't tab. Graphics often load in wrong places. Firefox shows
80-90% CPU usage for 30 seconds to a minute while thousands (no exaggeration,
three thousand and up!) of these messages are issued over and over.

How should this be a problem with the JS Console ? -> General

Minimal needed information if you report a problem with a plugin is the used
version, in this case the JRE version.....

RE: JAVA VERSION

The MS JVM is long gone, not on the system. As for the following, I only
installed one version at a time, no slip installs. The following were installed
and tried;

JRE 5.0 update 1 (through the Firefox install process) 
JRE 1.4.1.07 (per FF plugin help) 

I installed each twice with and twice without the registry tweak at 

 http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/resources/firebird-jre142-fix.reg_ 

On the second round of installs, I even scrubbed the registry to remove any
traces of the uninstalled version. 

Present version is 1.5.0 (1.5.0_01-b08). Downloads and installs were done
through the firefox install method.

Reporter:

Can you get the newest version of the JRE (5.0/1.5.0 beta 2) and either the
latest milestone build, or a recent (within 3 days) nightly and try this with a
clean profile?
