From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)
Description of problem:
After loading plugins like Java and restarting Mozilla, Mozilla still only
recognizes the default plugin. Have tried storing plugins both globally
(/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins) and per user. Did NOT have this problem with RH
Netscape 4.77 continues to work fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Go to a page that requires a plugin
3.Download plugin, receive, for example "Java plugin successful"
4. Restart Mozilla
5. Mozilla load only the default plugin
I had the same problem. I'm using the mozilla-0.9 rpms and the jdk-1.3.1 rpm
from sun. The fix that worked for me was to make the following symlink
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so
After that, mozilla picked up the java and flash plugins (flash seems to depend
on the java plugin because of the .class file I guess.)
Oh, you do have to run ldconfig for the change to take effect. :)
Did as stated above. Java seems to work fine. However, any web page that uses
Flash causes the program to crash (e.g., weather.com).
This should be fixed in 0.9.1 since we load the Xt libraries now. Should be in
