    If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce today would cost $100, get a million miles to the gallon, and explode once every few weeks, killing everyone inside.

    Got into the same exact situation after installing Firefox (Namoroka) 3.6

    64-bit users - take note:

    After making sure that sun-java6-plugin is installed, cut and paste the following command:

    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so mozilla-javaplugin.so /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 50

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    After trying different solutions, this exactly worked!.

    The issue I identified in my case is

    The firefox is installed as a part of Clean installation Hardy Heron.

    I upgraded this to 9.04.

    I noticed that this Firefox installation does not have any plug in directory and i had to create it manually in ~/.mozilla directory.

    I have already installed the JRE 1.6 Update 20.

    Thanks once again
