firefox crashes with java plugin installed

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Over the last 2 days i have had a problem with firefox crashing with java plugin installed.

 

I have tried firefox 2.0.0.6 & 7

Also java (jre) 5 & 6

 

I also have a problem in konqueror when it starts up in to web browser opening up mandriva's new web page, the error is

 

A script on this page is causing KHTML to freeze. If it continues to run, other applications may become less responsive.

Do you want to abort the script?

 

I don't really mind about konqueror but would prefure firefox to work correctly...

Are you installing these with the software gui, urpmi, or with files you've downloaded from another source?

In SUSE, there was a problem (since fixed) that caused Firefox and SeaMonkey not to recognize the Java plugin. Is this what you are seeing (it looks for the plugin, even though it is installed)?

There is also a known issue with Java and Firefox. If you want to run Java applets with Firefox, one needs to use the 32-bit version of Firefox.

for me 32 bit FF 2.0.0.11 with JRE 6u3 (RPM directly from Sun) works flawless and much faster than every version before

 

have you deinstalled the old libmozilla-firefox ?, don't know why but whenever I upgrade firefox through mandriva-repos the old lib doesn't get deinstalled
