When a java applet tries to connect to the internet (tcp/80) by using the socks proxy specified in the network setting of mozilla firefox, the browser crashes. When using internet explorer, java asks for username and password, and the applet works without problems. We are using the latest version of dante sockd in a linux  
 environment.

I have tried with the latest version of JRE and Firefox; browser still crashes. error occurs on all Windows LAN clients with different versions of Firefox and JRE 
installed (direct http  
 and https access blocked by firewall). methods configured for socks proxy (http/https): none or username/password
