java applets not working in firefox


Hi

I use firefox 3.0.1 in both vista and ubuntu 8.0.4. My web-based mail works perfectly well under vista. But when I use it under ubuntu it is erratic. For example sometimes firefox gives a grey and black screen and does not recover again. At other times it displays only the email text but not buttons that would allow operations like "send" etc.

Since the firefox version I am using is exactly the same I suspect something in Ubuntu is coming in the way of the applets loading properly in firefox. Appreciate help and guidance!

Regards.

Hi
Start and run Firefox from a command line to see if it shows any problems..
