Sure ... use synaptics to install the plugin as well. If there is no such thing
try to create a symlink from /<path>/<to>/<java>/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
to /<path>/<to>/firefox/plugins


Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: Shuffling this over to the Ubuntu forum for better exposure.

It's a symbolic link. Like the things on the windows desktop with a
little arrow pointing at the original file, just better ;}

man ln
for details...
