    upiter@linux-yalp:~> firefox -g
    upiter@linux-yalp:~> gcjwebplugin error: Failed to run /etc/alternatives/../../bin/java.  For more detail rerun "firefox -g" in a terminal window.

    Code:
    # update-alternatives --all
    
    There is only 1 program which provides jce_1.6.0_sun_local_policy
    (/usr/lib/jvm-private/java-1_6_0-sun/jce/vanilla/local_policy.jar). Nothing to configure.
    
    There is only 1 program which provides mount.ntfs

    There are 2 alternatives which provide `java'.

    I would select number 2 on your list and ensure that you have installed java-1_6_0-sun-plugin. I would then get rid of the openjdk versions.
    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

    I've removed openjdk using yast and deleted npwrapper.javaplugin.so in the Konsole:
    Code:
    # cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins/
    # rm npwrapper.javaplugin.so
    Now it seems to work.

    ok..
    So I tried what was said.. I made yast install the java-plugin.
    And I have to say.. I'm a total noob when it comes to programming or something like it..
    So. I typed in on Terminal: firefox -g
    I got a new firefox window.

    linux-byo4:~ # firefox -g
    *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB to enable).
    ERROR: Invalid browser function table. Some functionality may be restricted.

    Had problems with Firefox and Java too.

    Seems to be problems with Openoffice as I had to uninstall Firefox, Openoffice and java.
    Then reinstall Firefox, Openoffice and java-1_6_0-sun.

    And it solved my problems

    Since I allowed Firefox to update, I have this problem, too ("gcjwebplugin error"). OpenSUSE 11.2. I tried - reinstall sun java and reinstall Firefox 3.5.10 via Yast2.

    Now I get:

    firefox -g
    *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB to enable).
    *** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: /usr/lib/browser-plugins/javaplugin.so: undefined symbol: __gxx_personality_v0
    *** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: /usr/lib/browser-plugins/javaplugin.so: undefined symbol: __gxx_personality_v0

    (...infinite...)

    and:

    /usr/sbin/update-alternatives --display javaplugin
    javaplugin - status is auto.
    link currently points to /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so
    /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so - priority 1617
    Current `best' version is /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so.

    This last looks wrong to me, but I'm not sure.

    What I did to fix it:
    1) Remove all parts of openjava/openjdk (using Yast2).
    2) re-install sun java
    3) reinstall Firefox 3.5.10
    4) sudo mv /usr/lib/browser-plugins/npwrapper.javaplugin.so /usr/lib/browser-plugins/npwrapper.javaplugin.so.bak
