Firefox +Java = 100% cpu and crash

Post by user1 »

Using: Firefox-3.5 for Ubuntu 9.04, and Adblock+ 1.1

I noticed that when you go to this page:
http://midp-calc.sourceforge.net/Calc.html
and try the demo applet, it makes Firefox use way too much cpu, and crash.

If no extensions are running, it seems to run fine, but having Adblock or Noscript enabled crashes it.

That should be https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=498399
Unfortunately, not much movement around this bug :-(

Hello.

This issue was SOLVED here,
comment #6 at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=501173#c6.

Change the plugin firefox uses for java, from libjavaplugin_oji.so to libnpjp2.so.
Done.

For a system wide change:

Code: Select all

# rm /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
# ln -s /usr/lib/java/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
Hope it helps!
