I think it's the wrong directory - this is only valid for a certain 
firefox version.

Try this:
# ll /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
insgesamt 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 14. Apr 2009  libjavaplugin.so -> 
/etc/alternatives/libjavaplugin.so.x86_64

Here the alternatives stuff comes from the redhat packaged jre plugin 
version, you need to modify to where you installed the plugin.
