Dear all,

Any help concerning the topic as follws would be very appreciated.

freebsdangel# uname -a

It seems that this browser-plugin stuff is neverending.
All native freebsd browsers refuse to use plugins at all.
The linux versions of opera and and firefox correctly recognize the 
But the java-plugin is not recognized although having been linked 
correctly from diablo portsinstall.

freebsdangel# pwd
freebsdangel# ls -l
total 6898

Konqueror though can use java, when being given the correct java 
executable path. But, Konqueror is totally messed up somehow, it always 
takes about 30 seconds to open a webpage. firefox and opera are pretty 
fast though.

Another related issue: linux-flashplugin9 always segfaults the browser 
when used. I dunno what to do, I would relly like to be able to watch 
latest flash movies.

Best regards, Tino
