Sometimes, when you reload the page containing the applet or navigate through the browser history with Back and Forward, applets may stop working completely (empty applet area or so).

This may be related to the inability to create a new wrapper Odin window for the OS/2 window provided by Firefox. Needs investigation.

Probably related... I sometimes also find that if I have a Java plugin on one tab another tab is unable to load applets.

BTW, even this simple sequence gives problems here:

  1. Start Firefox and start any Java applet - WORKS.
  2. Exit Firefox - WORKS.
  3. Start Firefox and start the same applet - HANG.

The hang may even block PM sometimes.

Another failing scenario is errors about read/write soclet operations on non sockets. It also happens only on the second run. On the first run everything works.

Debugging didn't give any hint yet.
