    Default Firefox and Sun java 1.6

    I have just uninstalled and reinstalled Sun Java rpms from the repos, the Sun Java works well, but the plug in for Firefox doesn't even show up in the applications part of preferences in Firefox. I tried testing to see if i had Java installed at java.com and the install missing plugin window shows. Any help would be appreciated.

    I was having trouble with some Java applets in Firefox. I searched plugins under add-ons in Firefox for Java, added Java Console 6.0.02 and JavaScript Options 1.2.6.... restarted and all works now...

    I had the same problem but found out, that I also had a openjdk plugin.

    So go to Software management. Search for java and plugin under installed software.

    I uninstalled both java plugins and then installed the sun java plugin again.

    There was a problem with Sun's 64bit Linux version of Java in Firefox, I installed OpenJDK to get around it.
    I installed it, rebooted and Java on Firefox worked straight away.
