As a new convert from Windows, I am running Fedora Core 1 with Firefox 0.8 as my web browser. Several sites I visit require Java so I installed the latest stable version of Java. I think I have installed the Java plugins properly because Java works most of the time. With my limited Linux newbie know-how, I think I have Java installed correctly. However, some sites I go to now simply shut down the browser.
For one example, I like to visit http://www.wmmr.com
I'm from Philadelphia, living in North Carolina, and I like to visit my hometown radio stations
Before, these sites told me I needed the Java plugin. Now that I Java installed, some sites that require Java simply shutdown Firefox, yet some work fine. When I visit some sites they partially load, then BOOM, Firefox shuts down and I am looking at the GNOME desktop.
Some Java sites work fine and others simply shut down Firefox. Any suggestions of explanations for this?
