While I am trying to open the page, FC4 is warning that I need to install Java Runtime Environment. I have installed jre 1.5 (in the same way as described in Fedora Core Installation notes). Now jre is installed, and while I am trying to open the page, Firefox is not showing any warning yellow band at the top.
The problem is that, there is a scrolling display at the top of the page, but I am not getting the scrolling display.
I have checked Edit>Preference>Web Features and `Enable Java' is checked on.
What is the problem? any idea?
thanks in advance
Try removing your 'libnullplugin.so' plugin. I have found this to be completely useless and kept the Java plugin from working for me. To be safe, don't 'rm' it. Just 'mv' it to another directory so you can put it back if need be.

Not helped. Moved `libnullplugin.so', still no improvement.
Is your java plugin .so file a copy of the plugin or is it a symlink to the plugin in your java installation directory? I can't remember where I read that, either in the mozilla plugin faq or the java plugin install instructions, but it MUST be a symlink to the java plugin file, NOT a copy of the file. Apparently the java plugin needs to reference other java files and can only do so using ./
If I go into my firefox plugins directory and 'ls -la', this is what I see for my java plugin:
Sorry. I don't think I can help much more. This is quickly becoming a "must see" situation. The only other suggestion I can offer would be to install firefox from a non-rpm source or make sure you have your java in /usr/java or at least a symlink to it. I made that /usr/java symlink to get something working but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. I don't think it was the plugin, but it well might have been. On my system, /usr/java/jre1.5.0_05 points to /usr/local/jre1.5.0_05. Sorry, just clarifying that because I was in error describing it in my previous post.
