Re: [tlug] mozilla: really ready?

I'm using 1.0 RC2 on RH 7.1 and 7.2.
I'm very happy with it. It crashes less than Netscape 4.7x, and handles
Japanese, Unicode etc. much better. I have one gripe (below).

What was the real URL? I'd like to try this myself.

My gripe is with plugins. When I try to use Mozilla with my Internet
banking system, which is a Java app., it pops a window saying I need a
Java plugin and gives me the option of downloading it. If I say Go, it
downloads something then tells me the installation fails. 

The message is:

"Java 2 Plug-in for Linux: Download was unsuccessful. Please try again. 
The Java Plug-in is 7.6Mb and will take you 37 minutes to fully download 
with a 28.8 modem or 19 minutes with a 56K modem. Alternatively, you can 
download this plug-in directly from our FTP site at 
for Windows. Please e-mail if you continue to have 
problems.  Error encountered -- -202"

Note: (a) where they tell you to get the plugin. It in a Windows part of
their tree. (b) No instructions whatsoever on what to do with a .xpi
file. (There is another .xpi file in the ftp tree labelled Linux, which
I have downloaded, but I have no idea what to do with it.)

Emailing gets no response.

And the Internet banking app works anyway, probably because I have a
suitable jre installed from an RPM on Sun's site.
