This can also be duplicated by attempting to open the java console via Tools-->Web Developement--->Java Console: RESULT: Mozilla crash. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install the java 1.5.0 plugin per the instructions on this site. 2.Close and restart the browser. 3.Edit the preferences for java plugin as instructed on this site. 4.Click on Help and about plugins to verify that your java plugin is registered in Mozilla. 5. Click on tools. 6. Click on Web Developement. 7. Click on Java Console. Actual Results: Mozilla go BOOOM! Expected Results: Expected that Mozilla would remain and a java console would open, or in the case of the web site, that the jvm test results would display.

Also of note, I've tried both of the SUN supplied plugin builds. Both have issues.
There is something wrong with your setup. I'm using the java plugin just fine on Linux.
do you get any messages on the console, if you start mozilla from a terminal?

Jeff, just to be sure, you installed the plugin by making a symbolic link, not a hard link, correct?
(In reply to comment #3) > Jeff, just to be sure, you installed the plugin by making a symbolic link, not a > hard link, correct? > Yes I did. On a new note, I did a fresh install of Fedora Core 3 last night. It comes with Sun's JRE1.5.0 and Mozilla 1.7.3 pre-installed(not defaults). When I created this bug, I was using Redhat 9 with Kernel 2.6.9 etc. This bug is NOT repro on my current system build out. I created the same symbolic link and my Sun JRE and JVM are playing nicely with Mozilla 1.7.3. and with Firefox/0.10.1. Since the bug is not applicable to, or reproducible on a "currently" released OS, I'd suggest closing it.
