Everything about using Adblock Plus on Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey

Firefox +Java = 100% cpu and crash

Postby user1 » Thu Aug 06, 2009 11:52 pm

Using: Firefox-3.5 for Ubuntu 9.04, and Adblock+ 1.1

I noticed that when you go to this page:
http://midp-calc.sourceforge.net/Calc.html
and try the demo applet, it makes Firefox use way too much cpu, and crash.

If no extensions are running, it seems to run fine, but having Adblock or Noscript enabled crashes it.

Unfortunately, not much movement around this bug :-(

Hello.

This issue was SOLVED here,
comment #6 at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=501173#c6.

Change the plugin firefox uses for java, from libjavaplugin_oji.so to libnpjp2.so.
Done.

For a system wide change:
Code: Select all
# rm /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
# ln -s /usr/lib/java/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/


Hope it helps!
Mauricio
