Well, that's the problem I mentioned in this thread:

Search the boards for Firefox 3.6 and java. The only fix I've seen is to drop openJDK for Sun JRE.

I already had sun jre installed. It wouldnt work, I downgraded to the earlier firefox (which I assume I did not do properly), it was a mess. Finally using my back up settings after removing and installing firefox 3.5.6

info about installing sun java plugin would be appreciated.

First, you need to have at least Java 6 update 10. Install it to either user-wide or system-wide.

Second, rather than creating a symbol link for libjavaplugin_oji to Firefox plugins directory, this time you need to find the library called libnpjp2.so in Java installation directory. Running following in the installation directory will be helpful:

Code:
find . -name libnpjp2.so
Last, create a symbol link from libnpjp2.so in Java installation directory to Firefox plugin directory in the name of libnpjp2.so.

Now restart Firefox and try the Sun Java plugin verifying page again. It should work now.

I explained this process in detail on following page(in Chinese):

Any news on when can we expect it to be available in the normal repos (not rawhide) or will it definitely get pushed until fedora 13?

Is there any major reason to upgrade from 3.5 to 3.6 or just to have the newest..?
I dont think FF3.6 will land in the F12 repos, they never upgraded to a higher version within a release.

Well, I'm sort of doing some front-end work at the moment, so having up to date browsers can prove helpful with CSS3 and javascript engines evolving rapidly...

Thanks leigh for the info on how to build rpms. I am using Google Chrome for now (it is really FAST). I tried to install Firefox from rawhide but it wanted to install a whole bunch of other f13 packages too.

Yes there are reasons to have Firefox 3.6 instead of 3.5. Link. The main reason I want Firefox 3.6 is because it is a lot faster then 3.5 (still not as fast as Chrome though )

I upgraded to Rawhide (yes, I know I'm asking for trouble) and executing the print or print preview dialogs cause Firefox to crash. Anyone else able to print?

I'm going to disable my plugins and test, but I can't see my plugins causing this.

I've installed Chrome to do my printing. I hate to say this as a six year veteran of Firefox, but I'm warming to Chrome for its speed. Not so crazy about the clunky interface, so for the time being, I'll stick with Firefox.

Well, I do not have a real printer to test though the virtual pdf printer works fine for me.
