Mozilla 0.8.1 failes to launch when using Java plugin 1.3.0_02

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3 i686)
When using Mozilla milestone build 0.8.1 and Java plugin 1.3.0_02, mozilla
doesn't launch fully. It appears as if it is about to launch but then stops
and no windows appear on the screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Mozilla 0.8.1
2. Install Java plugin 1.3.0_02
3. Launch mozilla
Actual Results: Mozilla doesn't launch fully. It appears as if it is about
to launch but then stops and no windows appear on the screen.
Expected Results: Mozilla should launch fully and be able to display Java
applets when visiting web sites with Java applets.
This bug is non-existent in Redhat 7.0. I tried upgrading the kernel to
2.4.3 and this doesn't fix problem. When using one of the latest nightly
builds, the Mozilla window appears briefly and then dissappears. Here's my

Java has problems wrt. glibc and variable size statcks - read the release notes.
Except that the 0.8.1 startup script includes setting the variable to fix the
glibc issue. This means that it should work assuming that the glibc installed
on the system is new enough.
I am having the same problem. This bug id is marked as RESOLVED.
I can't see how it is resolved?
I am running redhat 7.1 (glibc2.2.2-10), with mozilla just downloaded from rawhide:
java from sun: j2re-1_3_0_02-linux.rpm
just doesn't work.
I tried this with Moz 0.9. Mozilla launches and can browse non-java web sites
fine but when access a java page, mozilla stops responding. Bug not resolved.
note: Mozilla 0.9 is BETA software. This could be a mozilla problem, I'm not
sure. I have previously created a bug report for Mozilla's Bugzilla. Bug number
Works now with Java 1.3.1
Where do you get the Java 1.3.1 package, anyway?
