Firefox and Java

I just installed Ubuntu ( 7.04 ) on an older machine that my kids use
for web surfing, AIM and email.  They got tired of losing their Windows
machine ( and data ) to virii and trojans so they were willing to try
Linux as long as they could have a Tux screen saver!  That was easy.

Things seemed to be fine for the past few days except for Firefox.  I
downloaded the latest version ( Version 6 Update 3 ) of Java and the
install went without a hitch.  The kids love yahoo games and the games
do come up, but they are soooooo sloooowwww.  And, Firefox will freeze
up for a few.  What happened?

Has anyone seen this problem and come up with a solution?
