I've tried on both a Win2K SP4 and a WinXP SP2 machine with Firefox 18.104.22.168, with all extensions disabled in both cases. The site works fine with IE 6 SP2 on both machines. I can't be any more specific than "Firefox hangs". When I try to close Firefox, Windows says "Firefox is not responding". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://swissinfo.net/cgi/worldtime/ 2. Firefox hangs. 3. Actual Results: The activity "circle" starts spinning; mouse cursor goes to hourglass, and that's it. Expected Results: Display the web page. I can't think of anything else, but I'll be happy to supply any additional info which is needed.
Works for me - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/126.96.36.199 It is likely the Java object on the page is causing your issue. Updating Java may solve the issue http://kb.mozillazine.org/Java#Installing_or_updating_Java
You're correct, although I can't explain the details. On the Win2K machine I already had the latest Java (1.5.0_11). I disabled it, so I was using _10. Then the site worked. But when I re-enabled _11, that also worked. On the XP machine, I only had 1.5.0_01. I upgraded to _11, and it worked. (Note that I can't be certain that the problem wasn't at the site, and it was fixed before you tried it. I didn't verify it still failed before I started playing with the Java versions on my machines.) Thanks for your help.
