|A customer using Mac OS X (release 2.3) with Netscape 7 (Java enabled)on a 500MHz Power PC G4 reports that the order process hangs on the Please Wait message after clicking on the Place Order button. He is not using a software firewall. Any other reports of this, or ideas about display_cart vs. display_cart2 for this class of user? I don't have access to a Mac with OS X and Netscape.|

|No, we haven't had any other reports of problems with Netscape 7 on the Mac OS yet... but we ourselves haven't done any official testing with that newer browser and the Mac OS yet either, so we'll try to check into it.|
| 2. Same thing here ...|

|Any word on what's causing this error with the above? We're getting reports too!|

|I've also received some complaints along this line. Here's one of them:|
i attempted to place an order but the shopping cart wouldnt work. I have mac os X (10.2.3) with the latest software and java - but it gave me the "please wait" page for.. 15 minutes (i was eating lunch waitng for it to load).
I think that this one is going to need to be looked at.

|Patrick Beard, lead developer of the MRJPluginCarbon software, updated the MRJPluginCarbon 1.0 Java plugin for Mac OS X|
to version 1.0.1 http://homepage.mac.com/pcbeard/MRJPlugin/ to provide compatibility with Mac OS X 10.2 and later.
But "unlike Netscape 6, Netscape 7 includes the MRJPluginCarbon inside the Netscape package itself, rather than accessing it through the Internet Plugins folder in the Mac OS X Library. The version of the plugin that is included with Netscape 7 for Mac OS X is still version 1.0. Hence, flaky compatibility for Mac OS X 10.2."
You can find this information and details on how to install the latest MRJPluginCarbon inside of Netscape from this link:
We are looking for Mac volunteers to try this out and let us know the results...
