Java in Firefox on Fedora 8
Java plugin in Firefox has worked a long time with this procedure:
- Install java from sun
- cd /usr/lib/firefox-xx/plugins
- ln -s /usr/java/jdk-xx/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so .
Not anymore. In Firefox 188.8.131.52 (and 184.108.40.206) on Fedora 8 the java plugin shows up in "aboutlugins" but java applets does not work.
Solution (evil hack):
yum install java-1.7.0-icedtea java-1.7.0-icedtea plugin
For some people this might not solve the problem if they need the Sun java but at least applets in Firefox works again.
