It has been noticed that under some scenarios AppletContext.showStatus fails to work in IE7 on all JREs including 6u10/6u11. Same scenarios works fine with FF2,FF3 and IE6.
Steps to reporduce:
1) Install JRE 6u11 or 6u10 or 5u17
2) Try to load following applet inside the IE7
a) Traditional applet:
- Clicking "Click2" should set message on the status bar.
If message is not getting get on the IE7 status basr then bug is reproduced
