From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010109 BuildID: 2001010901 After installing Mozilla for the first time, I visited a page I use as a benchmark for testing HTML and CSS compatibility - http://www.emuviews.com . There are some problems with the way the page is rendered, but the biggest problem was in an ad-banner on the page, which uses Java to render. Netscape prompted me to install the Java plugin. Two problems occurred in this process: (1) Aside from the "Download Java Runtime" window, which prompted me for either the Linux or Win32 version, another full browser window popped up simply reading "object:window". This window appeared to serve no purpose. (2) When the download began, the message "Resolving host" persisted in the window while the component was downloading, only changing when the download was complete. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: I'm not sure if I will be able to reproduce this. Here are my theorized steps: (1) Install Mozilla for the first time on a new computer that does not have the Sun Java Runtime installed on it. (2) Browse to a page such as http://www.emuviews.com/ that contains a Java-based ad-banner or applet. Mozilla should prompt you to install the Java plugin/runtime. (3) Follow the prompts to install the Runtime and watch for two additional popup windows - one to select the version of the runtime (Win32 or Linux) and one showing "object:window". (4) Select your version of the Runtime and watch the component download window for "Resolving host" message - see if it remains there throughout the download. Actual Results: These were my initial steps. Expected Results: The "object:window" window should not have appeared or should have contained some more useful information. The component download window should have displayed more useful information such as "Download progress... 20%" or simply "Downloading..." rather than "Resolving host". Note that during this time, the progress bar at the bottom of the window was moving in sync with the downloaded file.

The second problem is reported in bug 65026. I don't see the first problem reported anywhere but we need only one bug per report. So I am going to refile ut as bug 65673 and mark this WORKSFORME. Thanks for trying Mozilla.
