Introduction

Java console can crash in firefox on Ubuntu (and Debian).

Since 10.04, Ubuntu is shipped with openjdk java version and not sun version.

You need Oracle (Sun) Java 6 or 7 version to get the console correctly working.

Solution

shell script to update-sun-jre

  • check http://www.duinsoft.nl/packages.php?t=en , there is a shell script and a repository which make the installation of the Oracle (Sun) Java Runtime Environment very easy. I used it on Ubuntu, but it look like it'll work on any Debian based system.

On that link there is information about the java changes that occurred in August 2011.
