I used to have a problem with applets and Firefox on Windows - if anything went wrong in the applet (applet class not found, or some runtime exception is thrown inside applet), Java plugin would display a message and then Firefox would freeze and had to be killed from taskbar.
Now (b85) it even does not show the error message.
It makes developing applets very hard.

Is it just me (multiple JDKs/JREs installed on x64 etc) or is it broken for everybody?

Something like applet tag with missing applet class file is enough to crash the browser.

Probably fox-specific then - we have been enjoying our applets on MSIEs with Mustang no trouble ;)
