After installing the plugin however, it continues to fail to recognize the java vm is installed Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to any page with a java applet Actual Results: missing applet icon in place of applet; automatically forwarded to download a plugin. Extension manager launches and downloads/installs. Restart of firefox optional. continues to fail to use the applet. Expected Results: i'm thinking maybe the mime type isn't getting set ... but i don't know how to tell

Created attachment 152607 [details] early/wrong jre? installed sun's j2re 1.4.2 since my java rpm was jre-1.3.1_02-3cl. after installing from rpm and running ln -s /usr/java/blah-blah as found on a website where the same problem was discussed ... still get the load lib error. :snap: hmmm, maybe i also have to uninstall the old jre? I don't want to do that until I know it wont break anything

If PFS doesn't work, here's some info on manual installing on linux: a mustread: http://plugindoc.mozdev.com/linux.html#Java http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp http://blackdown.org/ Could someone confirm that PFS is working to install Java on Linux?
I suspect this ancient bug is no longer valid. Feel free to reopen if that's not the case.
