Hi, All:  This is another Tom.  Not Tom H.  I downloaded onto FC6.  I 
followed instructions that included linking some *plugin*.so file, but 
Firefox Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: 
Gecko/20071019 Fedora/ Firefox/ doesn't see it.  
I'm thinking I have to do something more in Firefox to enable?  Maybe?  
Any suggestions?
$ locate jre | less
