Description Harald Reindl 2009-07-01 13:13:33 EDT
If you want to use FF 3.5 on Fedora 10 you have to install openjdk/openjdk-plugin from fedora 11 to get the plugin working. I think something goes wrong here because other plugins (mplayer, flash...) working with every firefox-build

With openjdk from F10 firefox crashes while starting plugin
With openjdk from F11 it works fine

[root@srv-rhsoft:/downloads]$ rpm -qa | grep openjdk

[root@srv-rhsoft:/downloads]$ rpm -qa | grep firefox

[root@srv-rhsoft:/downloads]$ uname -a
Linux srv-rhsoft.rhsoft.net

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Too late for me to address this issue now. Sorry about that :/ 

Is F11 working for you now?
Comment 3 Harald Reindl 2009-11-27 12:11:23 EST
Hi, in the meantime i switched back to fedora-firefox because i switched my systems to x86_64, so the packages from mozilla.org are obsolete
Comment 4 Deepak Bhole 2009-11-27 15:48:15 EST
Ah, so you were using upstream firefox? That may not work with the plugin because of upstream API changes introduced in latest gecko versions.

A new Java plugin is in the works (it will be in Fedora 13) that uses the generic NP plugin API, and that should work across all versions of firefox >= 3.5.

Wonderful to hear!

This was the point i did not understand why all other lpugins (flash, gecko-mediaplayer..) are running on every version and the jdk not

Sometimes it's nice to have the newest firefox without 
making a dist-upgrade :-)

Thank you and redhat for your really great work!

Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
