Mozilla can be picky about the plugin... symlinking /usr/java/jdk1.3.1_06/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so to /usr/lib/mozilla1.3/plugin worked OK for me. If you start mozilla/opera from a terminal, do you get any usefull debug info?

Just a comment (not expecting points for this ;-)).

I too am using Mandrake 9.1 and Mozilla had the instant shutdown problem with Java.  I tried every possible alternative with the libjavaplugin files and eventually got so fed up that I changed browser.

I'm now using Firebird (and I really like it ;-))

It is a bit ... fickle... when it comes to java (I had a spat of only using galeon:-) but it is possible to overcome:-).

Best bet on this is to uninstall opera, and then completely re-install as I doubt anyone will be able to pick the exact reason for this strange behaviour.

Incidentally, I also recommend Firebird - much less fussy than the original Mozilla browser:

..and faster too:)
