JRE in Firefox

I installed the RPM version of Java 1.5 Release 6. I can run java programs like Azureus, but Firefox does not like running Java things. What needs to be done?

You need to install the mozilla_java package. It is a plugin that allows FF to run Java. If you need help finding it, there are a few thousand posts about it here on LQ, or google can find it easily.

Ahh. I added a link to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and now it works. Grazie.
