Latest JRE may cause SciFinder to freeze

SciFinder web users on either Windows or Macintosh operating systems who have downloaded the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) versions may encounter symptoms that resemble a “frozen” session when trying to use the structure editor.   The problem is speficially associated with these JRE versions:

JRE 1.6.0_u22 (Windows)

JREE 1.5.0_26 (Macintosh)

If you experience this problem, exit the drawing editor window by clicking the X button, sign out of SciFinder (by clicking Sign Out), close and restart the browser, and then sign back in to SciFinder.

CAS is at work on a fix to this problem and it will be available in SciFinder later this year.
