I think you might have filed this bug in the wrong place...

However according to this mailing list post:
it is a known bug in Sun's bug parade. A quick search turned up this:
Which suggests the problem will be fixed in newer versions of the Sun

I tried the jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.rpm as well with no success.  With
that version even the plugin for mozilla did not work.

So this has been broken since FC3 was released?

And the only option is to revert back to FC2 in order to get this
