cannot run mozilla after registaring javascript plugin

I cannot start mozilla ever since I registered my java plug in. I've downloaded the j2re..... JRE and have registered the same with mozilla(automatically) and ever since I've not been able to start mozilla. It just won't start. can some help ?



P.S. Command I used:

<jre_installation>/bin/ControlPanel [ ( -r scheme | -u scheme ) -c path -j path ]

-r scheme | -u scheme: Registers or unregisters the plugin, respectively, using the supplied scheme. Only one switch should be specified; and, if more that one is, only the last one specified will be honored. Registration schemes are described below.

-c path: As indicated by path, specifies where ControlPanel script can find the installation location of the browser.

-j path: As indicated by path, specifies where ControlPanel script can find the installation location of Java (Java Runtime Environment or JRE).

Remove the plugin link manually - if your Mozilla lib directory is /usr/lib/mozilla then your plugins directory should be /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. In that directory you should find a symbolic link called Remove it and create a new one, pointing to the plugin object file in the ns610-gcc32 subdirectory of the JRE plugin installation:
cd to the Mozilla plugin directory, then create the new symbolic link: ln -s /usr/local/java/j2sdk-1.4.2_04/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/ .

The path above will most likely be different from yours since it seems I am the only person alive using /usr/local/java for installing Java related stuff.
