User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414
Build Identifier: mozilla-1.7.8.de-AT.win32.installer.exe


Hi,

I have installed the newest Java 1.5.0 on Linux and Windows XP for Mozilla 1.7.8
but also 1.8.aX versions. All fine on Linux. Under Windows XP the Java plugins
seems not to work reliably. This means that one has to stop/restart Mozilla
several time (~10) before all Java applets work, E.g. in Google search the 2
grey area below the search window reduce to 2 tiny fields in case of a failure.
Of course any web page relying on Java fail. Once I got it to work after various
attempts all works properly. The problem starts again after the next Mozilla
launching.

One should mention that all works properly for Mozilla Firefox under Windows XP.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Mozilla 1.7.8 on Windows XP
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Java applets do not work most of the time.

Expected Results:  
Java applets should work.

I'm sorry, i don't understand what you mean.

In the suite's browser, go to about:plugins, what's listed for Java?

Did you test the newest Java 1.5.0_03 version?
Version: unspecified → 1.7 Branch

Java applets lock up regularly for me with SeaMonkey trunk build 2005081205 on
Windows XP SP 2, with Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0 Update 2. Applets
work fine at first, then randomly stop responding.

After upgrading to Java 5.0 Update 4, Java plugins seem to be working without
any problems. I'm using SeaMonkey build 2005091013 from the Gecko 1.8 branch on
Windows XP SP2. I had to install Mozilla, install Java, and copy the plugin
files from the Mozilla plugin directory to the SeaMonkey plugin directory to get
SeaMonkey to use the latest Java.

After I posted my last comment, I found that Java 5.0 Update 4 did still have
problems with lock-ups. I've been using Java 5.0 Update 5 for over a week
without any lock-ups. If you're still having problems with Java, try the latest
update.

Mass-closing bugs in the "OJI" component: OJI plugin integration was replaced with npruntime long ago, and these bugs appear to be irrelevant now. If there is in fact a real bug that remains, please file it new in the "Core" product, component "Plug-ins".
