Easy to Crash the new Plugin on IE
I've been seeing this problem ever since I started trying the builds of 6u10, and its still happening on b25. sorry I didnt report it earlier...
All I have to do is press the right mouse button inside the applet, drag the cursor outside of the applet on to the page, and then release the mouse button. IE shows the normal contex menu, but then goes in to a spin, CPU shoots up to 100% and IE is frozen entirely. Need to kill it with Task Manager.
If you like, you can try it on http://benloud.com/testpage.html
This doesnt happen on FireFox, nor does it occur with JDK6u6 under IE.
I dont develop applets, but I noticed the problem while playing one of my favourite boredom killers... Yahoo! Pool. You shoot by pulling on the cue with the right mouse button. The table is on the edge of the applet, so dragging outside happens all the time, and hence Yahoo Pool is completely unusable with IE. I hope this gets fixed, or else I'd wouldnt expect a great response to update 10 from the thousands of Yahoo Games users.
