There are scores of internet pages on java and firefox, tried many.
I succeded on Kubuntu hardy (too bad there is this unresolved sound problem
(recent thread "no sound after?")
On Jaunty I made mixed progress:
Installed both firefox3.0 and firefox 3.5,
made the required symbolic linkslibjavaplugin_oji.so in
both /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.12/plugins and /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/plugins
Tested both version:
firefox 3.0 passes the test
firefox 3.5 fails, I wonder why?
I try <http://www.ch.map24.com/> on 3.0: a map loads and disepears in a
second, to leave the message ."waiting for applet to be loaded"
I try <http://www.ch.map24.com/> on 3.0: a map loads, it is functional, but
*what is missing is the widget to create this map in a separtae window.*
# Enable Java through your Web browser (link)... OK
# Enable Java through the "Java Plug-in Control Panel" (link)...
...# Click on + icon next to Default Java for browsers.
...# Make sure the box next to Internet Explorer, Netscape, or Mozilla is
Here I have "Sun Java6 Plugin Control Panel" but the advance tab has no such
options, only: debug, java console,automatic downloading of jre,security and
command to launch default navigator (which I modified to firefox-3.5)
I also checked the authorisations for pop up windows.
My idea is that java is preventing firefox 3.0 to work on jaunty (but not on
hardy), and java is still not working for firefox 3.5, it explains why I have
only limited functionning.
Thanks for any advice Perry
