I have the links in both /usr/lib/firefox<version> as well as 
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. It just refuses to work for some reason.

I created ~/.mozilla/plugins and made a link there as well. Didn't work.

I've never had this much trouble getting Java to work. I can't imagine 
what the problem might be. I wish there were some error.log you could 
see that would give helpful hints.
