Maybe it didn't install properly. Try uninstalling and do it agian and make sure you have the right version of the version of Java. :)

Apply this registry patch (http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/resources/firebird-jre142-fix.reg) (right click and save to your computer then open it from there - simply clicking the link won't apply it.)

More info at plugin.mozdev.org (http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/phoenixwin.html).

Make sure Mozilla Firebird is closed first though!

Hi Wotz, i remember having this prob too ;-), the trick is there is a small reg. file you need to install. If you look here under FAQ plugins - "How do i install Java", the file and details are there.

Here (http://texturizer.net/firebird/faq.html#q2.2)

Hope that helps.

Put "about:plugins" into the address bar.

If java is not listed you need to copy NPjava*.dll from the java install into the firebird plugin directory.

Wherever it took me when it asked if I wanted to get it. I didn't take much notice of the location, sorry.
