My browser IE7 hangs when clicking any part of the form after a client side validation happens in jsf.The mouse pointer turns to busy symbol and doesn't allow me to click on any other link on the page unless i go to a different browser or minimize and maximize the current browser but no such problem in firefox..
Check if the generated HTML/JS output looks right, check for any JS errors. Trackback any HTML/JS errors to the JSF components in question. Find out if that is a bug of the component in question or of your own code. Just do that kind of simple basic debugging things.
I would also try a forum/mailinglist devoted to Trinidad. There is of course one at their own homepage over there at Apache.org.
