anyone having problems like this with java

Certain java apps that I load with mozilla ......load but have odd quirks about them like say I load a chat applet and I can only see half of what Im typing while chatting......or drop down menus in the chat applet arent responding when clicked ....i even tried reloading the app....

I was using sun 1.4.2 then decide to switch to blackdown 1.4.2 thinking
maybe it was the distributor or something....but now im starting to think its something to do with mozilla....

any ideas?

Actually, you might consider dropping back to 1.4.1. I've got a few Java tools I wrote under 1.4.1 that acted REALLY strangely under 1.4.2. Several of the Java programmers around here have also noticed odd things with 1.4.2. Nobody's had the time to investigate, but from our experience, 1.4.2 might not be the best Java release ever.
