In the page for the test of the jvm/java plug in, Mozilla closes before
completing even a portion of the test.  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.

NOTE: I did make sure it's a link to the plugin not the actual file itself.
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
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?

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.
