Description urs.rohrer 1998-11-23 03:59:18 UTC
I am using the Intel version:
The Linux version of Netscape 4.07 (included in Redhat 5.2)
has a bug in its Java (1.1.5) applet part. The version of
Netscape 4.05 (included in Redhat 5.1) did not show this
bug in its Java (1.1.2) applet part.

If a frame in a java applet is displayed, then the title
of the frame is not the one asked for by the java code
setTitle("foo") or super("foo"). Instead the titles are
AWTapp, AWTapp <2>, AWTapp <3> etc for the different frames.

Run my applet at

Additional remarks:
This bug may be related to javasoft's bug report 4091304
With the Windows 95/98/NT versions of Netscape browsers
this bug does not show up.
Downloading the newest 4.5 Linux Intel version an running it
shows the same bug !!

We have verified this as a bug, and hopefully it will be fixed in the
next release of Netscape.
