Firstly, that requirement only applies to Linux (and I guess other *nix platforms). Windows users can continue to use any version of Java from 1.3 upwards.

I'm not a Linux user, but AIUI, Java has to be compiled with the same version of the compiler as Mozilla for them to be able to work together. Mozilla has moved to a newer compiler (which means faster and more optimised Linux builds), so you now need a Java compiled with that newer compiler, and that means 1.4.2 beta.
