Hello Michal, Thanks for trying to help

For your info iced tea was the only java Icould get to work on 10.3.

Yes, because there were no openjdk and Sun Java with 64bit plugin available in
times of 10.3, so the IcedTea was only one possibility.

Regardless it does not work on 11.0 and I removed it and put 1.6 back on
before I even wrote the email you replied to. As per your instructions the
following is provided, Keep in mind that Firefox and Java are all x86_64

Easystreet:/ # rpm -qa | grep java-1

Easystreet:/ # update-alternatives --config
No alternatives for

Easystreet:/ # update-alternatives --display javaplugin
javaplugin - status is auto.

to /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/amd64/
/usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/amd64/ - priority

is /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/amd64/
----------- Remember also that any time I try to open a java application in
Firefox it immediately kills Firefox.

Well, there are some issued with new Sun Java plugin, but I did not hear about
a Firefox crash. Do you have some details? For example a crash log? Or some
site which causes it? Please fill a new bug and I'll try to forward it to Sun.

The 11.0 contains a MozillaFirefox 3.0, which might be compatible with, so there is no problem. Maybe the upcomming u14 will helps.
