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 http://alge.nlc.no/~alge/java/valuta.java ) Do you have a ~/plugin131.trace file?

>just copying it shouldn't register it as a plugin, -> it shouldn't die 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/libjavaplugin_oji.so Java(TM) Plug-in1.3.1 I'm uploading my ~/plugin131.trace next.
I get a 404 on http://alge.nlc.no/~alge/java/valuta.java 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) NAME exit - cause normal program termination DESCRIPTION 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: javaplugin_oji.so -> /etc/alternatives/javaplugin_oji.so which is created by the j2sdk1.3 Debian package from Blackdown. The static version was libjavaplugin_oji.so, god knowns how/where I got it. Deleting the static version resolved my issue with visiting java.sun.com For the record, I think I found the reference to the exit() discussion here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134568 Thanks for your help, my problem is solved.
