I can send it a "Quit" from the Dock, but eventually I have to go to the command line and run "kill". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.spectral.com/diode.htm 2. Observe hang 3. Run kill Expected Results: See http://www.spectral.com/diode.htm without a hang
Seems not to be a problem for the Windows version. WFM. Firefox 188.8.131.52 ID:2006011112. Win XP.
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060130 Firefox/1.6a1 I see a 8-second hang, but then the page appears and it is no longer unresponsive. The page contains a Java applet.
Ah. Java. For eclipse, I just changed the version of Current: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK -> 1.4.2 was changed to /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK -> 1.5 which points to 1.5.0 on Mac OS 10.4.4. I will undo that.
Changing back to 1.4.2 allowed the original problem site to work. Along the way to fixing this, I notice that http://www.java.com/en/dukeszone/ will now render, the applet runs, and then I can try selecting things from firefox's menu but neither that nor clicking on the window's contents ever does anything. Not the same hang, but a different one. With java off the rest of the page works (e.g. links).
Summary: This URL http://www.spectral.com/diode.htm causes Firefox to hang, requires "kill pid" to stop → hang at www.spectral.com/diode.htm because of java applet
Chris - any news here? Since this wasn't confirmed, was it possibly due to you multiple and possibly conflicting installations (did you do it manually...?)? Please update us and state latest versions & how vanilla the installations are.
It works for me in the current Firefox 184.108.40.206 and with Java version 1.5.0_06 from Apple Computer
