I follow the instruction here to install java plugins for firefox 1.5.
But it crashes firefox every time I start.

Any idea how to fix the problem?

Make sure you have the correct plugin linked in your Firefox plugins directory, there are two of them I believe, using the wrong one will crash your Firefox on startup.

1- First of all, download the jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin (from Sun) and close firefox.
2- Move the file to /opt
Code:
$ su -
$ password:<root's password>
#  mv /home/directory/jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin /opt
3- change the rights and unzip:
Code:
# # cd /opt
# chmod +x *-linux-i586.bin
# ./*.bin
4- create the link to the plugins directory:
Code:
 # ln -fs /opt/jre1.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

This was a very annoying install to need to do... it works though, which is always a bonus!
