Firefox 3.6 java plugin hang - fix

http://forums.opensuse.org – I had a problem ever since I moved to Firefox 3.6 where if I installed the java plugin Firefox would just hang. I didn't matter if I installed the sun or the iced tea one, or whether I installed via yast or manually using the files from Sun. Been searching for ages and have found plenty of forums with people who have this problem but no solution. I think I've finally found a workaround.
