Fedora :: JRE Using Sun's JRE And Config Firefox Plugin?

Mar 17, 2011

I am using Fedora 14 i386 and I am trying to configure Mozilla Firefox 3.6.15 to work with the JRE plugin. I have tried sever tutorials of this type (some slightly different) [URL]. However, I cannot get firefox to recognize the plugin. When I used the tutorial above I was also getting SELinux AVC denial warnings. If not clearly stated above, I downloaded the JRE directly from Oracle. I need to use the version from Oracle/Sun because the VPN client I have to use (from Juniper Networks) will not work with gcj or the openjdk provided from the default yum repositories.

General :: Firefox JRE Plugin Installation / Firefox Isn't Able To Recognise The Plugin?

Apr 11, 2011

Yesterday I wasn't able to successful enable JRE in my firefox.This is what I did ,

I downloaded the rpm from the file and installed it in /usr/java Code: chmod a+x jre-6u<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin./jre-6u<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin This successfully installed Firefox JRE in my system now in order to make firefox know abt it

I went to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins and
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_24/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so as said in the instruction manual. Still firefox isn't able to recognise the plugin.

Fedora :: Gwt Plugin For Firefox 3.6 Not Working

May 26, 2010

I upgraded yesterday from fedora 12 to 13, now I've an issue with the new Firefox (3.6): the GWT development plugin for firefox 3.6 is not working.

I read that (1) firefox 3.6 is supported, but it may not work on distributions where a custom patch has been applied on the gecko engine. Is this the case of ff 3.6 on fedora 13?

I've a 64bit machine, but I'm not sure if this is related.


Ok, I solved recompiling the plugin following the comment #16 at

Fedora :: Java Plugin For Firefox In F13?

May 29, 2010

Has anyone here gotten the Sun Java plugin (1.6.0_20) working in Firefox under F13? I'm using the Firefox 3.6.3-4 RPM supplied by F13, and I created the link in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to ${JAVA_HOME}/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so as I've always done, but the plugin fails to show up when I check the plugins in Firefox. I installed some other plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and they work fine, only Java doesn't work. It's weird because I've never had a problem getting the Java plugin to work in Firefox before this, and I've done it a million times.

I don't have the Fedora-supplied java packages installed, so it's not a issue of conflicting plugins. And the plugin does work in Opera. I also tried the 1.6.0_18 plugin from Sun, and that didn't work in Firefox either, though it works in F11. I can't figure out what's causing this just in F13. So far this is the only problem I've had in F13, everything else has worked great.

Fedora :: Firefox 4 And Java Plugin

May 6, 2011

I recently found out that my Firefox 4 plugin for Java is not working. My problem is that i have Java installed (unfortunately I found out that I accidentally installed the Sun Java and not the OpenJDK) and it is working, but the plugin just refuses to work.

However it should be installed because of the following output:


So I thought that maybe the wrong Java version is used, but it doesn't seem to be so:


There are 4 programs which provide 'java'.

So in theory OpenJDK should be selected and work with Firefox, unfortunately it doesn't.

Fedora :: Firefox Wants To Update Flash Plugin?

Oct 29, 2009

Fedora 11, 32-bit, updated daily manually via yum (console). Today got the Firefox update to 3.5.4. After restarting Firefox, the fist page reads: "You should update Adobe Flash Player right now." The link leads to Adobe site, which offers me Flash Player version All is fine so far, excluding the fact that I already have this player:

[root@pc ~]# rpm -qa | grep flash

Just for the record, on "aboutlugins" page Firefox confirms I do have the correct player version:

Shockwave Flash
File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32

Does it mean Firefox does not detect correctly the Flash plugin version? Or am I missing something?

Fedora :: Flash Plugin Not Working In Firefox 3.5

Dec 24, 2009

I have never had a problem with flash plugin before. Just recently I decided to try gnash to see if it plays flash videos better then flash plugin (it doesn't). So I updated flash plugin from the 10.0 r32 version to the 10.0 r42 version and went under Tools > Add-ons > Plugins in Firefox and disabled the gnash plugin and re-enabled the flash plugin and now flash does not work any more. I've tryed uninstalling gnash, reinstalling flash plugin, reinstalling Firefox. Flash just will not work. Flash works in Google Chrome or if I run Firefox as root.
I have Fedora 12 32bit

I disabled the new version of flash plugin (10.0 r42) and re-enabled the old version (10.0 r32) and now flash works. I dont understand the new version of flash plugin works but only in Google Chrome or if I run Firefox as root?! Also Firefox (as my user) shows both versions of flash plugin 10.0 r32 and 10.0 r42 Firefox as root and Google Chrome only show the new version.

Fedora :: Firefox With Sun Java Plugin Crash In F13?

Jun 8, 2010

If you uninstall openJDK then download and install Sun jre-6u20-linux-i586, the n install plugin with

ln /opt/java/jre1.6.0_20/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so .
Restart Firefox and try to open java applet, firefox crashes.

The reason I'm not using openJDK because it is not working with Webex and thats critical for my work

Fedora X86/64bit :: Java JRE Plugin On Firefox For 14?

Feb 13, 2011

how to run a java application on a 64 bit Firefox install on Fedora, but I didn't find any simple and direct way to do it. So I'll post this here, hoping that people who search for this problem can easily find this really quick solution.

1-> on the terminal do the usual su -
2-> yum install jre
3.> make a link in /home/your_name/.mozilla/plugins/ folder to the file located at /usr/java/jre1.6.0_23/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
(just select the file, press ctrl+shift and drag it to the plugins folder)
4-> go to http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp from firefox and test your install

Piece of cake, but it doesn't show up in search engines that easily when I look for: jre firefox 64 plugin fedora Granted that many tutorials mention the linking method, but most either tell you to install the binary/rpm from the java site or even installing the 32bit version for older fedoras... yum makes it so much easier.

Fedora :: FireFox About:config \ When Type Something In The Address Bar That Is Not A Url?

Feb 6, 2011

I would like to set my FireFox up so that when I type something in the address bar that is not a url, it will automatically do a google search. I have done this before, but that was a while ago and I can't remember what settings to change in about:config.Currently, when I type something that is not a url, it performs a search and then automatically opens the first web page that it finds, like a "I'm feeling lucky" search. I just want to see a google list.

Fedora Installation :: Java Sun - No New Plugin After Firefox Restart

Sep 21, 2009

I 'am trying to install Java on fedora but I 'am stuck a this line on this tutorial [URL]. Use spacebar to read the agreement. At the end type yes to proceed with the installation. To make Firefox use the installed plugin type:
su -c 'yum remove java-*-openjdk-plugin'
su -c 'ln -s /opt/jre1.6.0_14/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Restart Firefox and Tools -> Addons -> Plugins. If the plugin was successfully installed you should see Java(TM) Plug-in among the plugins. Now, if you also want to run java programs using Sun's java type in a console:

My shell
[root@shadow ~]# ln -s /opt/jrel.6.0_16/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
> /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Fedora :: Installing Flash Plugin For Mozilla Firefox

I have Fedora 12 installed:
Firefox version :
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20091216 Fedora/3.5.6-1.fc12 Firefox/3.5.6

I have installed the flash-plugin using yum. Restarted firefox but still not able to play ..... videos.

[root@saurav tonan]# yum install flash-plugin
Loaded plugins: download only, presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package flash-plugin- already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

But I am not able to see it in the plugins list, when I goto Tool >> add-ons >> plugins. I tried about login in the browser address bar, got the list, but its a lot of details, which one would tell me that the adobe flash player is installed. Later I downloaded the tar file and unzipped it and manually placed the .so file in the plugin folder as mentioned in the forums, but no luck.

Fedora :: Firefox 3.6 And Change OpenJDK Java Plugin?

Jan 22, 2010

see the released of Mozilla Firefox 3.6. However, it seems that Firefox 3.6 does not like current OpenJDK Java plugin installed by Fedora 12. (IT SUPPORTS NOW SEE SOLUTION BELOW) A little google turned out that in this release Firefox dropped the old Open Java Integration mechanism, which is currently being used by OpenJDK Java plugin. [Code] Now I have to manually install the JRE from Sun to get Java plugin in Firefox 3.6.

Is there any plan for OpenJDK to catch up with this change of Java plugin? I hope the Firefox 3.6 shipped with Fedora 13 could have OpenJDK Java plugin support.

Yes, OpenJDK did have plan for the new java plugin. Actually it arrived with IcedTea B17 (Alpha version, of course). However, the new plugin support is only enabled in Fedora 13 build config. Now our task is simple, upgrade the OpenJDK to Fedora 13 build in rawhide, like what we have done to Firefox.


Reboot your Firefox 3.6 and it's done. I have tested with Citrix java client and RuneScape. Citix works fine, but the RuneScape crashed with my Compiz. Switch off Compiz and the RuneScape works fine, too. It is not a big deal for me since I do not play RuneScape. So basically it WORKS.
