I think the Mozilla plugin site explicitly says that you cannot copy the
Java plugin into the Mozilla plugin directory. You have to make a symbolic
link to it in the plugin directory. Please try that.

without a problem. Then I fired up R and tried things and found that
help.start( ) does not work. I downloaded Sun Java j2re1.4.2, installed
that and re-installed R-1.7.1 from scratch. I tried help.start( ) again
and the browser (Mozilla 1.2.1) crashed.

tell me how to make help.start( ) work in R-1.7.1?
It doesn't help much, but it works fine on my SuSE 8.2 box, using
R-1.7.1 (patched) and Mozlla 1.2.1. I've also used Konqueror (the KDE
browser/file manager) using help.start(browser="konqueror"). Have you
tried that (or Galleon, or Opera, or ...)?
