Somewhere during the course of recent updates I've lost the Java plugin
for Firefox.  Not sure when it happened, but I know Java was working in
Firefox earlier this year.  Firefox comes up empty when searching for a
suitable plugin.  I'm running a fully updated CentOS 5.3 with the
following packages installed:


Any ideas what I'm missing?  The Java plugin is not something I use
often, but when I need it, I need it.  Do I need to dump openjdk and
get Java directly from Sun?  It looks like libjavaplugin_oji.so went
away when Sun Java got replaced by the openjdk version.

                 Do NOT delete it.
