We are facing the following issue in Netscape browser on using JPI version 1.4.1_04, 1.4.1_02 and 1.4.1_05. We are not facing this issue in
Internet Explorer.Also this issue appears only in Windows platform.
Netscape version : 7.1
Java plug in : 1.4.1_04, 1.4.1_02 and 1.4.1_05.
Platform : Windows
Netscape browser hangs on submitting a form having an applet.
Where we are seeing this issue:
JSObject workWindow = JSObject.getWindow(this); // handle for browser window
if(workWindow != null)
// Following is the place where Netscape browser hangs
retObject = workWindow.call(functionName, args); // call to the function
catch (Exception j)
// No exceptions seen here
Please find attached the thread dump of the hanging JVM instances. We
got the thread dump stack/list output by invoking the following option
in the Java console window when the hang occurred.
a) t: dump thread list (dump_thread_list.txt)
b) v: dump thread stack (dump_thread_stack1.txt and
As we got two different outputs on doing thread dump stack, we are
attaching both the outputs for your reference.
