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

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.

Hi Michal, thanks for staying with this.

No, it just dies. Closes, shuts down. If I go to restart it I get the
message do I want to restart the previous session ot start a new one. No
logs that I know of. You know where that may be?

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

Well my version of Firefoxis 3.0b5. That is why I asked earlier in this
thread that it might be a problem with Firefox itself.

It might be the problem. I see the 3.0.11 [1] in update repository for 11.0 so
update of your system is really recommended even if I'm not sure if it really
