Thread: Java in Firefox broke after upgrade

  1. Java in Firefox broke after upgrade

    ....I'm pretty sure this problem started when I updated FF from ver
    2.0.0.2 to 2.0.0.6. Sites that require Java enabled (just about all of
    them) are not loading correctly with ver 2.0.0.6 ....so I download the
    lastest rpm and tried to install it...thinking that since I upgraded FF
    that I would have to do the same for Java..and this is what it returned:

    linux-2wrl:/home/linux_fan # rpm -i flash-plugin-9.0.48.0-release.i386.rpm
    package flash-plugin-9.0.48.0-release is already installed

    ....Java is enabled within ver 2.0.0.6

    ....and if that is so, then how do I get ver 2.0.0.6 to find the path for java?

    create a symbolic link (ln -s) to libjavaplugin_oji.so (located in your
    java plugin directory) within Firefox's plugin directory.

    e.g. (example below is one line)
    ln -s /opt/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /opt/MozillaFirefox/lib/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Test Firefox's awareness of the plugin by typing "aboutlugins" (sans
    quotes) as a URL in Firefox or navigating to a Java test website (e.g.
    Sun's).
