      java full version "1.6.0_03-b05"

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The Java plugin fails working with Firefox (2.0.0.6).
      After installing the plugin and visiting a page with a java applet, there's no sign of Java activity, instead a file "plugin_stack.trace" appears in the home directory with the following content:
      [code]
      java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.sun.deploy.config.Config
      at sun.plugin.AppletViewer.initEnvironment(Unknown Source)
      at sun.plugin.navig.motif.Plugin.doit(Unknown Source)
      at sun.plugin.navig.motif.Plugin.start(Unknown Source)
      [/code]

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Install the plugin: open a terminal window and go to the Firefox plugin directory, then type "ln -s path_to_the_java_plugin.so".
      2. Restart Firefox and go to some site with an applet.
      3. The plugin doesn't work, instead there's appears a new file in user's home dir called "plugin_stack.trace".


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Don't use java 6 update 3.
