All Netscape/Mozilla windows blocking with Modal Dialogs

Hi...
I'm not quite sure if this is a bug. I am using Netscape 7.1 and JRE 1.4.2.
I have an applet which uses quite a few Modal Dialogs. Everytime a Modal Dialog comes up, every open Netscape window completely freezes or blocks(including the mail client and composer). Once the dialog is dismissed, the windows are active again. Also, any new Netscape windows that you open after the Dialog is opened are not blocked, but dismissing the dialog and opening another modal dialog will block even these new windows.
The same problem exists with Mozilla, but not with IE. With IE, only the browser window containing the applet is blocked (which is what I was expecting to happen in the first place).
Is there any way that I can use Modal Dialogs and not have all my Netscape/Mozilla windows totally block?? Is this a bug with Netscape, or is this the standard way it works. Please help!! Thank you.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
