Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Log as root

Launch mozilla

go to java.sun.com

Click "ok" to download

Click "Java Linux Plugin" to download

Click "ok" to download

After the installation

A window open wits text :
"Install Results
Java 2 Plug-in for Linux: Successful"

Do "File" "Quit"

Launch mozilla

A popup appear saying this :"The program must close to allow a previous
installation attempt to complete. Plase restart"

Try ok....Launching mozilla....Try ok....and so an....

To succeed I've done
[root@mylinux root]# ps -edf|grep mozilla
root      1837     1  0 20:11 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/mozilla/xpicleanup
root      1929  1894  0 20:12 pts/1    00:00:00 grep mozilla
[root@mylinux root]#

So I've got to do

"killall xpicleanup" before launching mozilla

And after going to java.sun.com with mozilla is ok...

I think Java is important for users...So you should fix this one...
