Refreshing an applet in a browser

I have an applet that when the refresh button is pressed within a browser, the applet does not reload properly. Shift-refresh does not fix the problem either. So I have written a method reset() which "resets" the applet and I've put it in the start() method of the applet. However, this creates a new problem. When a Netscape browser is resized, it calls start() which will reset my applet...so this is no good. Is there a better way to go about this? Also, in IE on the Mac, when refresh is pressed, the html page reloads but the applet does not appear.
Thanks!

I think you're on the right track... look for whatever logic is "not working correctly" and move it to the start() and stop() methods...

I really can't help you much more than this without code and a more in-depth explanation of what you are trying to do...
