Mozilla Plugins?

I'm running v1.5.0.4 and I followed the stanton finly guide to setup java but the plugins just aren't working. Since I'm with the 64 bit I had to install both 32 bit and 64 bit version and then since I couldnt find a plugin folder in the 64bit version i used the plugin for the 32 bit but it doens't work. So maybe i just have the wrong plugin folder? I did the mozilla default.. /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugin/

That's because many of the plugins are not completely ready for 64-bit.........

The Mozilla and Firefox browsers along with the java plugin (and others) should be 32-bit. Remove the 64-bit versions of the browser(s) and the jre and install the 32-bit version of the browser(s), warning you will need a couple of 32-bit libs for this. Mplayer and the mplayerplug-in need to be the 32-bit versions also, since the extra codecs are only for 32-bit.

The 32-bit java link should be in the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin location.
