I have installed the Sun java jdk and linked the plugin library

ln -s /usr/java/latest/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 
/home/pgaltieri/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so

I restarted firefox and accessed

http://www.gokgs.com/applet.jsp

And it locked firefox up for about 1 minute.  During this time clicking 
on a tab would do nothing, clicking on the menu bar would do nothing.  
After about a minute all my mouse clicks in firefox suddenly caught up, 
but it still would not render the applet.  On the other hand 
google-chrome had no problem rendering it.

I'm running firefox 3.5.11 on F12 with sun jdk jdk1.6.0_20.
