Description (last modified by haysmark)

I tested the robot with FF2 and the Java 1.4 plugin on Linux but it remains to be seen whether FF3 and Java 1.6 work on Linux. Linux is special because Java on Linux uses the X11 event queue to simulate user input instead of the actual cursor and keyboard.

Configuration: FF3.0.4 Java 1.6.0_07-b06 symlink sun-java6-plugin into FF plugins directory

Successfully reproduced the crash on an up to date Linux system. The test runs but crashes the browser at the very end, when the JS uninits the applet. Cause is still unclear.

Update: my FF2 was pointing to Java 1.4, not Java 1.5. After updating the system, this combination stopped working and was what produced the crash on the end of the test. When I was attempting to run FF3, it would instead point to the FF2 in my path unbeknown to me.

My FF3 install was also pointing to the nc7-gcc plugin. This caused the browser to crash when loading the browser with a robot page. When I pointed it to the plain nc7 plugin, the test worked as expected with no crash at the end. Hmm.
