Java plugin crashes with NullPointerException in Firefox and Chrome

Every time I go to a website that uses java, the plugin crashes.

Running 'firefox -safe-mode' from the terminal, and going to http://java.com/en/download/installed.j … =jre&try=1 I get the following message in the terminal:

	
    java version "1.7.0_40"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.1) (ArchLinux build 7.u40_2.4.1-1-x86_64)

            at sun.applet.PluginMain.main(PluginMain.java:109)
    Something very bad happened. I don't know what to do, so I am going to exit :(

This also happens with google-chrome. Any ideas?

Re: Java plugin crashes with NullPointerException in Firefox and Chrome

same here with firefox, i think you should enter  a bug report.

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Java plugin crashes with NullPointerException in Firefox and Chrome

I found the bug report here: http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/s … gi?id=1495
Arch specific bug report: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/36082

It seems like the 1.4-2 release of icedtea-web-java7 incorporates the fix mentioned in the bug reports. At least I don't get freezes anymore.
