    Default Firefox 4 in 11.4 Java script issue

    Don't really know how to do a check on this issue.
    I was on a https; secure checkout, the last stage for payment, payment authorization.
    Confirm button was dead.

    I tried with both the default JDK and latter with the SUN Java versions from Non-Oss
    Neither worked

    So I switched browser to Seamonkey and all was good.

    i assume you are using a beta browser?

    don't you know you should expect to find problems when you use
    pre-release/TESTING software? ;-)

    is seamonkey also a beta?
    if not, maybe all you need to do is log a bug?

    oh, i didn't notice it was you! or would'a said Sir!
    i know i should's quiet because i have no idea...well, actually i do
    but i JUST thought of it can't a java VM problem since seamonkey would
    also fail, so must be a javascript problem i guess a problem with the
    way beta 4 is handling the script...

    well, let me ask, was it a java app, or java script that failed....can
    you share with us the site ... and i'll have a look at it..

    Does the site really use the Java plugin? Very few sites need Java these days. Are you confusing Java with Javascript?

    Obviously this is going to be hard to try again, but next time it happens, use the debugging addon Firebug to examine the DOM to see what happened to the button.

    It could be a transient error and would have worked next time. It could also be poorly written Javascript on the site, these things happen.

    If we follow "the letter of the law", then the OP is using a "test" release of Firefox. If we consider the report in a somewhat wider view, the packaging of Firefox 4.0beta with the openSUSE 11.4 supported release might tend to add a certain de facto air of legitimacy to the concern.

    Of course, the OP is most certainly aware of the status, though the many others rapidly downloading and installing 11.4 face the same potential problems.

    More simply said: openSUSE 11.4 should have been released with Firefox 3.6.15 (or whatever was current on the release date).

    i do not disagree, but i also do not make the decisions around
    here...if i did a current (non-beta) firefox would have been default
    installed..

    at the very most i might could have been arm twisted to allow the
    installing user to be given a CHOICE between beta and not..

    Not if like me SeaMonkey (not beta) always gets installed quickly after install.

    I agree with your final comment, but imagine the whining and crying if FF 4 hadn't been included.

    True. Early in my installs (immediately after the automatic updates), I installed Firefox 3.6.15!

    I can imagine reading the tirades, diatribes and pummeling potpourri ...... it might have been interesting reading for about 30 seconds !

    I do agree with DenverD: I think a choice of FF 3.6.15 or FF4.beta would have been preferable.

    Hi,

    I'm also seeing unpredictable non fatal behaviour in FF and nearly every day get a new file hs_err_pidxxxx.log.
    The file size can vary in size from 1,5k upto 120k. It always indicates a Java Runtime Environment error.

    I'm assuming these error are due to using beta SW.

    Here is the smallest one, just for info. I expect you have something similar.
    Code:
    #
    # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
