The java plugins are normally part of the suse install. I'm thinking You must
have done some personal "customization" somehow. On all the suse systems I've
seen, the firefox plugins directory contains links to plugins located in

The plugins in /usr/lib/browser-plugins are all owned by various packages -
For instance, the java plugin is owned by "java-1_4_2-sun-plugin".

Does rpm -V java-1_4_2-sun-plugin show any errors?

Does your firefox plugins directory contain symlinks to all the files in
