How to enable java runtime environment?

I tried a lot but I can’ t enable java in firefox. I’ ve installed java jre 1.6.20, I created symbolic shorcut to .mozilla/plugins directory but it doesn’ t work. By the way /plugins directory wasn’ esixt and i created it in .mozilla dir. I use opensuse 11.2 and firefox 3.6.3.
Any idea?

In firefox type

you could always remove the jdk version and install the sun java

I see some plugins but don’ t see anything related about java.

Go to Yast and first make sure you switch to the QT UI

(you may need to logout or reboot after doing this)

Then go to software management
remove java jdk
Install sun java, see the screen I posted above earlier.
