Iceweasel/Firefox 2.0 and Java applets
Ever since I upgraded to Iceweasel (Firefox 2.0) while a Java applet is
loading the entire browser freezes. Most Java applets aren't very
large on the sites I frequent, but the National Weather Service radar
loops and satellite loops are rather large, and/or their sites are slow,
and Iceweasel freezes completely until the entire radar map or satellite
map is loaded.
If the NWS site is really busy it means Iceweasel will freeze for a long
period of time (length of load times are in minutes when the site is
slow) and the only way to leave the site is to right click the top of
the browser, choose close, and and when the "force close" pop up window
appears force it to close.
I never had this problem with Firefox 1.x. If the site was slow, and I
didn't want to wait, I could just choose another site from Bookmarks and
surf away from the site. Iceweasel has changed all that.
Is anyone else running into this?
