Yes, I really do need Citrix... The remote access "solution" I'm trying to use 
was designed by people I don't even know, much less have any influence over.

Also, using linux-firefox is the ONLY solution for Java plugin on amd64 -- the 
native plugin is not available on 64-bit platforms due to an unfortunate bug 
(Sun's -- a pointer is cast to an explicitly 32-bit integer), which FreeBSD 
are yet to locally patch:

The patch is rather trivial, but it is a different subject...

So, what about linux-jdk and linux-firefox? Is not our linuxulator somewhat 
incomplete without this combo working perfectly?

I can add more details -- linux-sun-jdk16 never works (hangs). linux-sun-jdk15 
works sometimes (about 40% of the time), other times it dumps "java core" in 
the form of an hs_err*.log file and the browser needs restarting...

Once again, does anybody have Java plugin working in linux-firefox?
