** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox-2
  
  I am using this version of firefox on Gutsy:
  
  Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080207
  Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/2.0.0.12
  
  Sun JAva 6 Web start is installed and up-to-date
  
  Most applets work fine, but when I open some sites,
  ( like this one: http://fergusmurray.members.beeb.net/Trochor.htm)
  the applet seems to start working, but then freezes. The mouse pointer moves, but clicking does not work.
  No keyboard commands work. I have to press the power button to log out, and the system workes fine after log in. 
  
  I tested this on several users (on one computer) with the same result. I
  have a dual boot machine and the problem did not arise in Vista.
  
  What I would have liked to happen is that ubuntu gave me a possibility to interrupt the :wild: applet, 
  and/or a clue for how to solve the problem, 
  and/or to see a message that I have to install a new Java version, etc etc.
  
  I hope this bug report will help to make Ubuntu even better!
  
  greetings, Mark
