User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:
Gecko/20100401 SUSE/3.6.3-1.5 Firefox/3.6.3

there's no symlink for /usr/bin/javaws as there is for /usr/bin/java

this can be added, thus:

# ln -s /etc/alternatives/javaws /usr/bin/javaws

but ideally it should be there already

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. access a website which returns a .jnlp
2. firefox can't find the helper app
Actual Results:
you end up running /etc/alternatives/javaws manually

Expected Results:
the .jnlp should kick off the java WS process
