>I also have this problem with the installation of Firefox. The installation 
process searches for files which it cannot find. When I search for  them on 
websites for Java I cannot find some of the particular files it asks for. It   
seems that the version of Firefox I find  for FreeBSD is not  the latest 
Firefox version. So it wants java programmes that are too old  and not found 
on the java websites anymore.
