No error is displayed, process just quits. I'm using Mozilla 1.0.0 on a plain
Debian woody box. JRE is 1.3.1.
master question #1 : Have you correctly symlinked the plugin or copied ?

just copying it shouldn't register it as a plugin, -> it shouldn't die.
What JRE are you using? (sun? blackdown?)
Is the JRE registering correctly? (shows up in help -> about plugins)
Does it crash with any other java applets? 
(try )
Do you have a ~/plugin131.trace file?

It dies and mozilla can't do anything because the plugin just calls Exit()

Search and you will find the comment from sun about this.

The plugin registers fine:

File name: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
Java(TM) Plug-in1.3.1

I'm uploading my ~/plugin131.trace next.

I get a 404 on

What do you mean with "plugin just calls Exit()"? Shouldn't all other browsers
(IE, Opera) also exit then? And no, I cannot find the comments of Sun about
this. Please submit the URL that you found this information at.
IE = invalid (because windows)

Can you please answer my question ?
*Have you symlinked the plugin or copied ?*

Search yourself in bugzilla for the SUN developer comment about this.

And that mozilla crashes if the plugin calls exit() :
EXIT(3) Linux Programmer's Manual             EXIT(3)
 exit - cause normal program termination
 The  exit()  function  causes  normal program termination and the value of
 status is returned to the parent.  All functions registered with  atexit()
 and  on_exit()  are called in the reverse order of their registration, and
 all open streams are flushed and closed.
that means if java plugin, which is running in brower's
process space, calls exit() the whole process will be terminated

Ok, I think I found my problem. I had both a symlink and a static copy of the
plugin in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. The symlink is: -> /etc/alternatives/

which is created by the j2sdk1.3 Debian package from Blackdown. The static
version was, god knowns how/where I got it. Deleting the
static version resolved my issue with visiting

For the record, I think I found the reference to the exit() discussion here:

Thanks for your help, my problem is solved.
