  • While trying to graph:
    www.seekingalpha.com

    The applet started to draw the graph and then the window became blank. Java console is grey.

    C:\Documents and Settings\compaq1>java -version
    java version "1.5.0-rc"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-rc-b63)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-rc-b63, mixed mode)

    Browser is Firefox 1.0 Preview Release:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1

     
    • Java console shows first how it retrieves data. Then the  applet starts to draw and when the network expands (out of screen?), the screen becomes blank and the Java console grey. It is not in loop, because it doesn't consume CPU according to TaskManager. 

       
    • I get this too when using Firefox (1.06) ... works fine in IE6

    • I get this with both Firefox 1.06 and IE6

       
    • I get this on XP Pro IE6 and FireFox 1.06 and once on Win98SE with IE6.  More often it just starts loading the applet and hangs.  Under XP the task manager will run and I can shut down the browser.  On Win98SE it's totally locked up requiring ctrl-alt-del to reboot.
      I found that on Win98SE if I launched the demo and it worked then by clicking "clear" in the toughgraph toolbar and entering a new url it would work.  Got several useful network diagrams.  Then that quit and it won't work at all.  Power off reboot won't even restore it.
      Doesn't look too stable or maybe something is being blocked by anti-spyware, pop-upblockers, or memory contention?
      Any suggestions?
