Could you please click the Firefox button, go to Add-ons, then Plugins and disable the Yahoo ActiveX plugin.

Then close Firefox and restart it again.

thanks for trying to help. the original jxpinstall.exe failed when i ran it. the other jre-6u25-windows-i586-iftw.exe also failed. in addition, i got a message that they were unable to download http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.6.0/1.6.0_25-b06.xml. separately, http://www.java.com/en/ didn't give me a option to download a plugin

This worked fine for me (the Xircal post at the top, not the one just above this). I did it on my XP-SP3/P4 machine
