I have a web app we use for remote control called Remotely Anywhere. It is substantially similar to LogMeIn, but locally hosted on each Windows computer. Whenever I try and log in from my SL7.1 computer to one of these, I get the ICE Tea plugin notice to allow Java to run, but when that pops up, my entire desktop (XFCE4) freezes, not just Firefox or that tab. I have to wait about a minute for Ice Tea plugin to crash, and then everything starts working again.

As you can imagine, this is frustrating when i need to remote in to someone's desktop to support them. It doesn't lock up Oracle Java on Windows, but I have no desire to try and get Oracle Java working with Firefox on SL7.1...

Is this a bug? Does anyone have any ideas how I might make it not lock up the entire desktop environment?
