Whenever I run into these types of issues, I generally try out the 
versions from the original source.  Give it a shot with the "official" 
Java 1.4.2 from Sun.  I've done this on several boxes and know that it 
works OK.  I'd also try out Moz 1.7.3 from www.mozilla.org.  Since 
you've done this with Firefox, you might want to give it a shot, and 
have your teacher try it on her Java-enabled Web site just to see if it 

Let us know.
