Java shuts down Mozilla


I've installed the latest Java plugin file and tried both linking:

ln libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

and copying:

cp libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

the file to both the above location and mozilla-1.2.1/plugins. (Both together and separately - i.e. every possible combination.)

and as long as there either the .so file itself or a link to it, Mozilla shuts down when it tries to load a page with a java script in it.

Any suggestions/ideas?

Thanks,
Phil

Try "ln -s blahblahblah.so" rather than "ln blahblahblah" See if that doesn't work.

This bug actually made it to Mozilla's release notes. Seems the glitch has been around for a great many versions of the browser.

This link should help:

http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.2.1/#java

That seems to answer my question, but where's pref.js?

It should be somewhere in the /home/%userdir%/.mozilla/ folder.

Well, it was there, but I didn't see a forged setting. In fact, looking closely at the bug, it says that JRE shuts down, but in my case it's Mozilla that's shutting down...

Hmmm...
