It's probably an issue with the browser, the plugin, the JVM and/or

Have you tried Everybuddy or Gaim for ICQ?  There's a bunch of ICQ

There are other JVMs (such as 'kaffe' or 'gcj') but they aren't as
complete or up-to-date as the Sun/Blackdown one.

I've attached the source and bytecode for a "hello world" program.
Save the .class file somewhere and try "java Hello" in the directory
you saved it.  In addition, if you want, you can try compiling from
the source yourself.  (the command is "javac Hello.java", same command
to run it)

If this works, then you know the basics of the jvm work.  If this
fails, you've got bigger problems.  (FWIW I use the 'j2sdk1.3' package
daily at work for java development)

yourself because it is virtually impossible to add the next feature in
a cross-platform manner".  (that's how I've paid the bills this past
