When calling AppletContext.showDocument to open a URL in a new window, both the new window and applet window close. This is happening with the latest build of Java 6u2 (April 12). Anyone else having this issue ? This is happening with IE7 on XP, but not Vista. Popup blocker is disabled.

Your symptoms sound very similar to what I just posted on this forum. Do you have an SSVHelper Class plugin? Do the windows still close if you disable this plugin?

I disabled the that plugin in IE and now everything is working. Interestingly, it does not affect only applets...even if I just click on a link in a web page that opens a new window, both close down when this plugin is enabled. Sounds to me that this is a pretty big bug, sure hope it gets resolved before 6u2 is released. Thanks again.

Does the problem happen with all user accounts on the same machine?
How many JREs are on the machine? And which versions?

Please try to uninstall all JRE's on the machine and re-install 6u2 again and see if it fixes the issue. If multiple JRE's are required, reinstall the JRE's in the order of versions from lowest to the highest.
