...following your comments I have now looked at the installation of 11.2
I am using (not the "clean" install on the other HDs) and find that the
java I have installed is java-1_6_0-openjdk and the plugin for Firefox
is of the same name and not the "real" java from Sun.

Following from this, I can only say that your conclusion - in the words
of one of the Penguins in the first "Madagascar" movie - "This won't
fly!" :-) .

Something else has caused the problem.

I wonder if it is the symbolic link (links actually) - starting in
/usr/lib/browser-plugins - to the java which may be the cause? But
removing the jdk java and installing the Sun version somehow created the
correct symlinks? <Shrugs shoulders>

It is not a problem having both versions of java installed, or even more
and different version levels. openSUSE has provided
"update-alternatives" to allow you to choose your poison.

update-alternatives --config java

will give you choice among the java versions installed.

"real" ?? a misnomer....
