64 bit java plugin for firefox

I keep reading on the web about how there is now a 64 bit plugin and even saw Eric state in the Slackware 64 thread that there was a plugin for x86_64...

So... My question is.... Where does this plugin reside?

I'm seeing a ./lib/amd64/ but that gives me nothing with "about:config"

I've got a 64 bit flash plugin.... Just need a java one and I'll be set as far as the web goes....

Any help most appreciated...

In my box there is a symlink in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins: -> /usr/lib64/java/jre/lib/amd64/

It is good way to keep the global plugins inside mozilla's dir, not the firefox's installation dir.
