Have you reported this to both responsible parties?
I recently updated my Java program to the latest version (J2SE1.5.0_01) from J2SE1.4.2. This change produced an undesirable change on web sites with live chat (eg. WebCamNow). The change is that live chat now only updates if the cursor is in the live chat window. When the cursor is used for typing in the message box or clicking on a name on the live cam list, the visible updating of live chat stops and does not resume until the cursor is clicked again in the live chat box. Prior to downloading the java update, the live chat window continued to update while using the cursor for other functions on the web page. I have deleted and reloaded J2SE1.5.0_01 several times and have seen the same behavior. Does anyone have any suggestions for achieving the previous performance of continuous visual display of live chat independent of cursor use when using J2SE1.5.0_01? I am using the Windows XP (sp2) operating system and Internet Explorer vers. 6.0.
