Firefox 3.5 and Java

In my Firefox 3.5 on Suse 11.1 java applets are not running. I tried a lot of test sites, eg Java Tester - What Version of Java Are You Running?

about plugins shows:‘The IcedTea Web Browser Plugin 1.4 (suse-24.5.2-i386) executes Java applets.’ with all mimes activated.

Furthermore under settings-> content java is activated.

Java runs well for other applications than ff3.5

Any Ideas on how to get java running with ff3.5 ?

PS: Java applets run well with konquerer, must be a ff3.5 issue

Installing 32-bit Java the Yast way - openSUSE Forums

Mine is working

No success. Did it the Yast-way, but no changes. Anymore ideas ?

Did you do this
Next you’ll need to create a symbolic link for your web browser to use the java plugin.

Open a terminal and type this:


enter your root password

cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins 
ln -s /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7/

Did the complete howto
-but- thanks a lot, due to your post I checked the link and on my system it has to point to ‘jre_sun’ and not ‘jre_1.6.0’.
Now everything is fine.

Good job, well done.
