cant attach files to email with browse button - weird!!


i have ubuntu 6.06 and i recently installed sunjava onto it...
after that, i am not able to attach files to my hotmail unless i type in the path of the file...using the browse button causes the window to close...no errors given or anything...
and cant find anything on the internet..probably because i dont know what exactly is wrong...
got any solutions..?

i read over it thast it was after you installed java... i dont think the problem is activex then cuz they dont have much in comon.

what you should do is open a terminal then start the browser from there start firefox with the command
Code:
$ firefox
then do what you gotta do and when it crashes (or closes) you'll maybe see some warnings in the console. post that here maybe it makes some clearance
