However, I redundantly added the following step:
Open: "Control Center -> Internet&Network->Web Browser->plugins" and then add the path to the preferred plugins; I added <path>/jre1.5.0_08/plugin/i386/ns7/ (and then pressed the "Apply" button from the window)
The <path> from above depends on the concrete linux box of the user.
I would appreciate very much any alternate solution that does not depend on KDE, GNOME or any other window interface; I mean a solution by editing configuration files (if possible).
Thanks again mebrelith and thanks in advance for any file editing solution!
