Firefox 3.0a7 crashes using the latest Sun java release 6u2. The crash appears reproducible and don't start the installed talkback.
The same java works fine in firefox, Seamonkey, Opera and Konqueror, even if I install a former version (Gran Paradiso 3.0a6) in the same location keeping my plugins folder.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the latest Firefox trunk nightly.
2. Install the Sun jre 6u2 and set a symlink to the in the  Firefox plugins folder. 
3. Run Firefox and visit (a German browser test site with 3 java applets.
4. Firefox crashes immediatly without to start talkback.

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
Firefox should run the jre and show the applets.

This is only with the new 6u2 jre, the 6u1 jre worked with the firefox 30a7 nighlies.

If you're using trunk, Breakpad should catch the crash.

I'm absolutely sure that breakpad didn't work. There was no data transfer after the crash, there was no Crash-Reports directory in my profile-folder.
There are 2 file in the minidump folder of the profile with no further information. I tried to get it with gdb, but that didn't work because the firefox-bin stops if it isn't started via the start-script.

I am having a similar problem with JRE 6u2 with Firefox If I use the normal ns7 version of the plugin, Firefox recognises the plugin but doesn't use it for anything. No applets appear on any pages. If I use the ns7-gcc29 version, Firefox crashes on any page with an applet on it. JRE version 1.5 works OK.
do you still see this problem using most recent version of firefox (3.5, 3.6 or trunk build) and latest version of plugin software?

Closing since now after whiteboard closeme date and no reply to last comment.

Please reopen/comment with further info, if you still see this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later, with a clean profile and the latest version of the plugin.

If you wish, you can also try to reproduce in Firefox 4 Beta 8 or later:
