Downloaded NS6 for Linux, but got some sort of xp* (forgot exact name) component error, and (I think) as a consequence thereof had very incomplete menus (blank menu items with no functionality). The crazy thing is that I am rooting so much for Moz that I almost convinced myself that this was acceptable *.0 behavior! I haven't had time to do another download (dial up connection). I only hope the Windows version that the mass market will get is in better shape.

I was, however, able to get Java to work on the 1106 Mozilla (not NS) nightly by copying over the plugins directory from NS6 to my Mozilla directory -- this combination is good enough for full time use. The only thing I am not thrilled about is that Java displays System.out messages to the applet area upon launching an applet.
