Java Plug-in for FireFox


when I go to view a webpage using my Firefox, it says :

This page contains imformation of a certain type (application/x-java-vm) that can be only viewed with appropriate plugins.
Click Ok to download plugin.

So I click download, and it says the installation finished successfully. But when I go to page again, it doesn't work, says the same thing.

I have already installed jsdk1.4.2, and it works fine in my computer.

Any solutions?

Thank you in advance!!!

If you have jsdk installed then you don't need to download the plugin, just make symbolic links from whereever java is installed to your firefox/plugins directory:

cd /path/to/firefox/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4.2_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns4/ ./
ln -s /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4.2_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/ ./

You might have to modify the paths but you get the idea. That worked for me anyway, there is more info at
