To enable java, download and install the appropriate version for your
architecture here.
http://java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp?locale=en&host=www.java.com .

For i386:

    Navigate to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and create ln -s
to /usr/java/jre*/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so.

For x86_64:

    Navigate to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins and ln -s
to /usr/java/jre*/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so.
