diablo-jdk/-jre does not have Mozilla plugin for amd64. You have to build *JDK* from ports with plugin support, i.e., ports/java/jdk15 or ports/java/jdk16. Jung-uk Kim Works Perfect:-) I've installed jdk15 and the plugin worked immediately. Thanks a lot, because this means I can continue using my FreeBSD desktop iso switching to a linux pc whenever I needed to work at home. Ciao Dino --------------------------------- Never miss a thing.
