64-bit firefox on ubuntu 11.04 crashes trying to run 32-bit java applet, should this be possible?
on 64-bit Ubuntu installation I need to be able to run a 32-bit java applet within browser. If this is possible, how? With icedtea6 plugin (for 64-bit jre) firefox crashes when applet first starts to run.
You can try to install the Oracle Java via the Ubuntu Software Manager/Update Manager/PackageKit/Package Manager, if it is an option. Please note that you may have to temporarily disable the IcedTea plugin in Tools (Alt + T) > Add-ons > Plugins to prevent conflicts when playing Java content in Firefox. Posting in the Ubuntu forums would also be very helpful.
