Java in Mozilla: There, but not.

I have installed the newset Java runtimes from into Mozilla 1.6.

Worked fine, it even shows all the plugins in the mozilla plugin page, but it doesn't work. Mozilla still attempts to download it itself (which doesn't work).

I am running Fedora Core 1.

assuming you used the mozilla installer from mozilla and used the default install directory of /usr/local/mozilla, it looks like you may have linked to the wrong java plugin in /usr/local/mozilla/plugins. you need to link to the java plugin in the ns610-gcc32 in you java install directory.

Make aplugins folder in your profile and install it in there.
mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /path/to/j2re1.4.2_03/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/
Change /path/to in that last line to the real place where you installed java. Also, if you installed a slightly different version to me some of the folders may have different names on your machine. Get it right or the symbolic link will be pointing at the wrong place and so won't work.
As megaspaz said, it must be the in the ns610-gcc32 folder.
