Hi samantha!

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org. I believe that the reason why your Mozilla is crashing is because you are using a wrong java plugin. Usually, Java comes with two plugins, ns7 and ns7-gcc. I don't actually know the difference between them, but one of them usually works ^_^.

I don't use Java Runtime, but Java SDK, which is to develop Java applications ratter then running them. Still, the process should be the same. Make a link from your Java plugin to your mozilla plugin folder. Here is an example:

ln -s /opt/jdk1.5.0_03/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Note that the above is an example. Substitute the paths for the paths you've used in your system. A few distribution prefers to have the mozilla plugins at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins instead. If even after doing this you still have crashes, try the other plugin:

ln -s /opt/jdk1.5.0_03/jre/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

I hope it was not too complicated. I explain things really bad sometimes ^_^. Try also searching the forum for more examples.

Good luck!

If you are using the java supplied by Dag Wieers, don't. It is outdated and slow.

Go to java.sun.com and download Java 1.5 update 4. They have instructions for getting it installed, and of course I know how to do it.

My mom uses pogo and I sometimes play Yahoo games, we both use Ubuntu, and I find java 1.5 works the best for these sites.
