Ubuntu 8.04 Runescape Problem

Following the upgrade of my laptop to Ubuntu 8.04, Zoe found that Runescape would no longer run on Firefox.

 This thread on Ubuntu Forums suggested that the problem was that  icedtea-gcjwebplugin  was being used to run Java applets instead of the  sun-java6-plugin.  I started the Synaptic package manager and completely removed the icedtea-gcjwebplugin package (the sun-java6-plugin was already installed). 

This fixed the problem; Zoe was able to get into Runescape again.
