Just tried this with FF3B4 64-bit. Per Yast I had JRE 1.5 from Sun

No joy.

I tried installing 1.6 in addition, still no joy. I got both JRE's
from the official 10.3 repositories, so it may be that there is an
update somewhere to work with FF3B4.

You have probably installed a 32 bit java plug-in and are using a 64 bit
browser. Get the 1.7 iced tea java and 64 bit plugin from the factory
repository, and it will work. It did here, running 64 bit FF3B4, and
1.7 iced tea java on 10.3 x86_64.

what i accidentally discovered is that the *java* version must be the i586
vesrion in order for the javaplugin to work. nsplugin wrapper takes care of
the 32/64 bit browser issue, but nothing to my knowledge takes care of the
32/64 bit issues between java and javaplugin. after that little discovery i
found that even the 1.5 plugin is better than the so called 1.7 ice-pack.
so, fire up yast 2, software updates, click on java, then click on versions in
the bottom window to see what's installed, click on the i586 version and away
you go...
