I hope this post saves someone else all the hassle.

After pulling my hair out for 3 days I was finaly able to get the newest Java JRE (version 17) working in Firefox 3.5.5. Java would work when Firefox was loaded from the terminal but immediately crash when accesing a java site if loaded from the desktop.
Follow the instructions found at http://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/java
for the basic install which will allow you to access firefox within the terminal.Then create a second link to be able to use Firefox from the desktop ln -s /opt/java/64/jre1.6.0_17/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib64/firefox-addons/plugins
