White screen with java in firefox


Hi guys, my problem is that I get a white screen that I cannot right click on where any java applet in firefox should be. Firefox says java is enabled, and in about:plugins it says I have java installed.

I have a x86_64 (AMD64) distro of linux and of java and im using SuSE 10.0 (mp3 support on which is a bi*ch to get working), and im running java 1.5.0

I had tried a few different ways to get java working with firefox, none of em worked
These are mostly what I tried:
yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialMozillaConfiguration.html
thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/178/42/
plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/firefox-linux.html#install-java

And I'm using java's test virtual machine to see if its working
java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml

This is a screenshot of what I see when trying to run the test machine

Here's the info from my about:plugins page concerning java

I just disabled Java and JavaScripts in the FireFox and see exactly what is on the screenshot.
Do you have them enabled?

I am having this same problem. I just updated to Slackware Current. I deleted the official ff 1.07 and replaced it with 1.5rc3 of ff. I have created the symbolic link, ff reports to have all java plugins working, but I only get a white screen where the data should be. The sound for the screen is loading (it makes a specific sound upon connnection) but nothing shows up.

Aboutlugins gives me:
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.5.0_04-b05

File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.5.0_04

application/x-java-applet;version=1.4.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;version=1.5 Java Yes
application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.5.0_04 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.3 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.2.1 Java Yes

application/x-java-bean;version=1.4.1 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.4.2 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;version=1.5 Java Yes
application/x-java-bean;jpi-version=1.5.0_04 Java Yes

And I even enables the java console to see if that could give me any clues. It shows:
