Java applet inside tab loses state in non-IE browsers

Reported by: Robin Smidsrød Owned by: Robin Smidsrød
Priority: major Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: ui.tabs Version: 1.8.4
Keywords: java, applet, exception Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


In Firefox 3.6.8 on Windows 7 x64 (with 32-bit JRE) the applet will quite often (almost always) not load properly, and if you switch tabs the applet will be completely unloaded and reload, making it lose any instance state it has. On IE8 on the same machine the applet seems to operate as it should. Going into the Java Control Panel -> Advanced -> Debugging and enabling all the three debugging options should give you full life-cycle feedback of the applet in the Java Plugin console (I believe a full browser restart is required to activate it).

Zip file with minimal test case that illustrates point attached.

It sounds like this has been fixed in Firefox:

Can you confirm?

The attached archive does indeed work for me on Firefox 14.0.1 32-bit on Windows 7 x64 using Java SE 7 U6, version

The applet only initializes once.

It seems like the Mozilla team fixed the problem.

Thanks. Closing as won't fix since this now only affects versions that we don't support.
