But the problem is that with the same version of FF I can access that java home-banking site in another distro!
I have experienced this in all versions of Solyd, and I guess is because Debian's JRE is always older than the one the bank asks for (the very last). Do you agree with me?

the top uname -r is from the BE where this issue does not happen; the bottom one is from the HE where it happens.

the difference is not the newer kernel;
the problem is the number of dots in the kernel version!
and it's a problem because the java applet does exactly this check to see if the platform is supported (three dot fourteen hyphen two only has 2 dotted elements while three dot two dot zero hyphen four has 3 dotted elements and is "java-compatible")

as Ben acknowledged in the link i provided above, only debian does this modification of linux version number, so you only see this peculiar problem in debian or derivatives that use their package base.

if the command line given above to start firefox works (despite the warnings and errors spammed in the terminal) use it.

Now I know that (dots, number of version) stuff.
So... how do we workaround it!!??

As ZZ said, if the above command works (you can safely ignore the Glib errors), then you have a working work-around solution.

systems is risky at best and entails serious compatibility
problems; usually it's the best way to destroy an install"
