This regression should be fixed in 3.6
--> Core Axianx: in what versions of Firefox are you seeing this? And do you have a test URL or testcase that we can use to find a regression range?
@Mike: Firefox 3.5.5 Go to https://www.elsteronline.de/eportal/Authentisiere.tax, select the radiobutton "Software-Zert." and click "Login". This is the site where I took the sceenshot https://bug521389.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=405428
WFM on OSX and win32 using a latest Firefox 3.6 nightly, though in Windows the applet never fully initialized due to a NullPointerException in the code (ran fine on OSX, bizarrely) We'll need a confirmation before we can block on this.
As per comment 5, might be 3.5.x only; QA, can we get a confirmation?
[testday-20120713] I cannot reproduce this on the latest Nightly. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:16.0) Gecko/16.0 Firefox/16.0 Windows 7 x64 Steps Taken 1. Go to https://www.elsteronline.de/eportal/Authentisiere.tax 2. Click on Software-Zertifikat radio button 3. Click Login 4. Java applet loads as expected, and html area remains visible as expected
Please reopen this bug if it's reproducible in the latest Nightly.
