Using Netscape 4.77 on W2k, I attempt to play the rules roundup exams. When the applet loads the next question, I only the answer text. The Question info is blank.
In-adventently I looked at the html source code. Closing the source window reveled the questions text. Apparently any graphic refresh of the browser, such as "view info" will cause the question text to appear in the applet, but its a pain to walk thru the exams this way. This problem does not occur with I.E. Upgrading NS is not a option right now. Can any one tell me why applets do this??

Hi Lou,
I'm not sure what's wrong, it works fine in NN 4.78; although I do remember having some problems with NN 4.76. Used to have to page down and then page up to get things to display correctly.

Jane,
I installed NS 4.78 along side 4.77 and created a new profile, but the problem still exists. It does seem to refresh now after just scrolling. The post button now seems to disapear on occasion. I am going to confir with NS on this.

I have removed NS4.77, 4.78 and reinstalled 4.78 amd problem still exists.
Now NS 6.1 has been installed and the JRE upgraded to 1.31...
and problem still exists.
What might this be? Perhaps a corrupt font. !!
NS doesn't appear to have an email support line anymore, will try listservs.

I am also having same problem with my NN4.7 and win2k.
I have to use alt+tab to see the question.
Also resizing loads the applet again, I avoid NN because of this,
IE is fine though.

Can anyone in the know tell me if the roundup applet is using sockets other than port 80 ?

It seems that Netscape 4.7 causes several unusual things to happen to the Rules Roundup applet. I have also seen the missing question problem, but I ran into another unusual problem today. I got 100% (for the first time), and when I clicked on the "Next" button, the game restarted. However, the program didn't clean itself up properly. The "ranking" information was still visible on the screen, but the question text was not, and only one of the answer radio buttons was visible. I guess it's time to either update the browser or switch to IE.

I get exactly the same problem using IE 5.0 running under Windows NT 4. Since it only occurs when I get 100%, it really isn't much of a problem. ;-)
