Are you still using the old Java plugin for Firefox?

In about:plugins, what’s the filename of the Java plugin?

Is it libjavaplugin_oji.so? If so, you should update to the new Java plugin. Run:

sudo update-alternatives --config xulrunner-1.9-javaplugin.so

Now select libnpjp2.so instead and restart Firefox.

Source: Out of date java 6 plugin installed.

  1. Looking at about:config I see “javaplugin_oji” for “java.java_plugin_library_name”.

    But then this happens:

    [email protected]:~/$ sudo update-alternatives –config xulrunner-1.9-javaplugin.so
    There is only one alternative in link group xulrunner-1.9-javaplugin.so: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
    Nothing to configure.

    Maybe your browser actually uses one of the other plugins listed in /usr/lib/jvm/.java-6-sun.jinfo and not xulrunner-1.9-javaplugin.so?
