    Create a symbolic link to the libnpjp2.so file in the browser plugins directory
    • Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Firefox installation directory
      cd <Firefox installation directory>/plugins
    • Create the symbolic link
      ln -s <Java installation directory>/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so
    How do I download and install 32-bit Java for Linux?
