I've got that problem when I used FF2 in Gutsy. At that time, I solved 
as follows:
first, check the the java runtime environment installed in your system.
If you can find the folder such as /usr/java/jre.1.5.0_10, it has been 
Next, go to the folder in which firefox is installed (e.g., 
/usr/bin/firefox) and
make the following link file,
"sudo ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_10/plugin/i386/ns7 ./"

I hope this may help you~  :-)
