Have a Java applet that is multi-threaded and implements a GUI with 100s of status updates a second using Socket connection. It runs fine under IE but hangs when run with Fire Fox 16, 17, and 19. JDK tried are 1.7.0_09, 1.7.0_13 and 1.7.0_15 but everyone experiences a hang after about 7 hours or crashes. Started capturing SIGPIPE signal and found that Java crashes when a large number of SIGPIPE signals are received. Fire Fox continues to run. Looking for help either with the root cause finding or how to trouble shoot the issue. Any help is appreciated.
