Mozilla Firebird crashes with java plugin.


I have Mozilla Firebird Browser.
I also have java j2re1.4.2.

I issue the comand:
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /MozillaFirebird/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Everything works ok.
The link goes into the plugins directory fine.

BUT, once the plugin in installed Mozilla Firebird will not run.
When I delete the link to the java plugin, it works...

Hmmm...

oh yes... here is the output when I try to run Mozilla Firebird with the java plugin installed:

[root@cdc1 MozillaFirebird]# ./MozillaFirebird
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory?

System error?:: Success
[root@cdc1 MozillaFirebird]#

Try asking on the Mozilla newsgroups, that is an internal error. Alternatively join #mozilla on irc.mozilla.org, and ask there.

oh please, I always do a bit of research before complaining

the fact of the matter is that firebird even reports my plugin as working through aboutlugins and its the same symbolic link thats in my mozilla-1.4/plugins directory with javasdk1.4.2 yet if I load a page with a java applet... I get great crashes with "INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: JavaPluginInstance5::GetValue - Not implemented
System error?:: Success" which has only happened with the latest nightly builds, the original firebird 6.1 works perfectly but like I said before, I can either have fugly fonts with no anti-aliasing or really pretty fonts with and gtk2 builtin. I'm running everything up to date with the exception of my compiler and glibc (Don't wanna upgrade them... scared) which are like 2.3.1 and 3.2.1 but the newest firebird is made from glibc 2.3.2 though since I have no other errors so I doubt its from glibc. I have tried several different nightly builds all to the same effect so I'm lost on what to do now except to what for newer versions. oh yes, it is a soft symlink from mypathtojavasdk2/javasomething/jre/i386/plugin/ns600-g32/libjavasomething.so to /mypathtofirebird/MozillaFirebird/plugins/libjavasomething.so
or something like that.

just out of curiousity I'll try blackdown though

EDIT: the same error occurs with blackdown

I have exactly the same problem. The browser(firebird) crashes after I create a symbolic link to the java plugin. Actually, for me the same thing happened in opera too!
I don't think blackdown will be of much help, coz I know that the j2re 1.4.2(from sun) has worked for many users.

I've just started using Firebird and I'm gradually moving away from the mozilla suite. I'm having the same problems as you guys. This is my error message.

INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: JavaPluginInstance5::GetValue - Not implementedSystem error?:: Success

I did a little googling and found this on mozilla.org. I've tried to understand it...but I can't seem to wrap my brain around it. I believe that it's the code for a patch...but I'm not sure what to do with it.

Could someone help me with this or point me in the right direction? This seems like it will be an awesome learning project. I'd like to learn the process of how to fix it...not just what to do.

for the record...
I'm using RH9, Firebird 0.6.1+, sun j2re1.4.2_01 ns610-gcc32, gcc 3.2.2. the plugin is symlinked to my MozillaFirebird/plugins folder as well as the mozilla/plugins folder. and it DOES show up in "about:plugins". do you need any more pertinant information?

btw...
the only thing I know about C++ is how to make a "hello world" script. please take that into consideration. Thanks in advance!

I also made this mistake, please link to ns610-gcc instead

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

yes yes, I should have made a reply to this sometime earlier but don't worry about that java thing right now, I mean you have another browser to use prlly if you need to visit a site with a java applet. Incase you haven't figured it out yet, this java error is a known bug and is supposively suns fault. If you have the java plugin symlink for firebird it WILL crash. I recommend you delete it promptly to avoid frustration. But yes it will be fixed soon and those code fixes on that site are not for the weak at heart so just wait till its announced that the problem is fixed in the latest nightly's and use them.

btw codec, this has nothing to do with which plugin version you use as its a bug in the java plugins not a symlink to the wrong plugin.

right on! thanks for your reply. hopefully the dev's will come up with something for us 'weak at heart(s)' soon.

I'm starting to like firebird more than mozilla so I'll keep my eyes on the nightly's.

It works now!

I just upgraded from Mozilla Firebird GTK/XFT 20030929 to 20031012 (nightlies) and Java works without a problem with a symlink to the ns610-gcc32 object file. Sweet.

then it couldn't have been the same symlink :P and the problem was with a bug in firebird/java not from improper symlinking
