Hi Gene. Ideally remove the icedtea browser plugin, using Apt, as I do, or
Yum, or Smart.Your choice, but just get rid of the damned thing. As an
alternative, go to to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and remove/delete
libjavaplugin.so. I am presuming that you have Sun's JRE installed, and in
which case before removing the libjavaplugin.so, you should have Firefox's
about:plugins showing both the gcj stuff, and Sun's jre
(libjavaplugin_oji.so). Having got rid of libjavaplugin.so (the gcj thing
that don't work), restart Firefox, and run about:plugins. Hopefully you will
only have the libjavaplugin_oji.so showing now, apart from your other
Now try . http://www.jigzone.com, and if all's gone well you may be able to
waste some time playing some interesting jigsaws.
I'll be back.
