browser wont open if blackdown j2re1.3 installed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install mozilla on debian 2.4 testing
2.install j2re1.3 
3.uninstall j2re1.3
Is the crash in the browser or the java plugin? are you spoofing the useragent? 
Are there any error messages in your terminal?
Comments from Jules:

The browser attempts to open on both icewm, and kde. The toolbar icon emerges,
and the mouse has a pretty star following it.  This goes on for  about 20 secs,
with a few short bursts of activity in the cpu usage kicker for the first 5-10
secs.  Then the browser dies silently.

I have reproduced this several times by install/remove of j2re1.3 (blackdown
java package - contains 3D and sdk also.)

I run an up-to-the-minute debian/woody system.

Sorry I can't be of more help ... unless you would like me to test something


Over to OJI and setting status to new to get this looked at.

Is it still reproducible? 
Did you try sun's jre?
 (if it work with sun's jre then this is blackdown problem and should be
reported to them)

Also, try to run mozilla from console and check for any output or new 
files created in working directory. 
Please post "ls -l" output for plugins and components directories in your
mozilla installation.

This works for me. If I uninstall JRE, mozilla still can open but just can't use
Since we don't have much information from the reporter, I just close this one.
Anyone feel free to reopen if you have more information on this bug.
