Yep.. java, not javascript.  Just was perusing Dag's site, and I don't 
even see a "late" version of i-386 firefox.  Think the latest version 
was less than 1, or maybe 1.0x-something.  From a previous post some 
time back on the same thread, it would appear to me that the upstream 
provider either should drop the x86-64 version of firefox and go to the 
386 version.  I don't know of any reason anyone would *need* the 64-bit
