JavaFX Fail [Dec. 4th, 2008|11:19 pm]

I go to look at the JavaFX demos. I'm redirected by javafx.com to a URL that contains /mac-player.jsp. Write-once-run-anywhere, my ass. Sun's own URL is calling an end to that lie.

Then, after a long hang, my browser goes white and all the other windows and tabs hang and start spinning rainbow beachballs and I get a trust dialog:

After that Safari hung so hard I hand to force kill it a few times.

Good job.

I still don't know what JavaFX is.

...any idea how to unbreak Safari following this debacle ?

Out of interesting, did you find a way to *stop* Safari crashing after looking at a javaFX page ? I tried this myself a few days ago - ever since then it just crashes whenever I open it. cant do anything with it at all.

I guess I need to uninstall whatever sun-junk has been depoited on my machine, but OSX does tend to hide stuff like that (makes me pine for my NeXT - which did they change so much when they ported it?).

All advice gartefully received - this post comes up at the top when you look for Safari/javaFX/craash in google, so you would be doing the world a favour if you have found a solution ;-)
