yesterday, i resolved the issue.

type about:plugins in url box, then there is a link to firefox plugin
document.

at first, i used firefix-3.6. the java plugin always did not work.
later, i changed the jdk version. it still not work.
last, i changed to used firefox-3.5, then it's OK.

therefor, you can change the firefox version to 3.5.

notice, link /path-to-jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so to
~/mozila/plugins, not copy.
