As Andrew says, your original report is not very specific.  Can you please
report the version given in about:plugins?

Assuming by Debian 5.0, you mean you are tracking the stable version then that
has a very old version of IcedTea6 (and thus the plugin):

$ java -version 
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK  Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_0-b11)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 1.6.0_0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)

IceCat 3.6 will not even work with the old plugin provided by this version.  We
do not support this old plugin any more.

I suggest reporting this to bugs.debian.org first as they will know more about
exactly what is shipping with Debian and about any backports that may have been
done.  If you feel up to the task, you can build a version of IcedTea6 1.8
which includes the new plugin.  See http://icedtea.classpath.org for

Reassigning this to plugin on the assumption it's the old plugin we no longer
supported that's at fault.
