Hello François, 

I think it depents on which architecture you are running on. 

If it is on x86_64, then things seem to be a bit complicated. 

In my case, I have 2 FF kits installed: 

        # rpm -q --qf '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' firefox
Normal call of "/usr/bin/firefox" usually calls the x86_64 variant of
it. Unfortunately, there is no x86_64 variant of the SUN JRE Moz/FF
Java plugin, so the idea is to use the "nspluginwrapper" which allows
the i386 SUN JRE Java Plugin to be used by the x86_64 FF. The command
to make this work is "mozilla-plugin-config -i".

Interestingly enough, I also have 2 variants of "nspluginwrapper"
installed and I don't know if this is supposed to be "automagic" . . .
obviously not, since I can't get the SUN JRE Plugin to run under FF - Maybe somebody else has an idea?

Best Regards,
