Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

In Linux, one normally adds java plugin capability by establishing a
symbolic link from the firefox "plugins" directory to the JRE shared

$ cd <Firefox>/plugins
$ ln -s <JRE>/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so . 

But the 4.0 beta doesn't have a "plugins" directory - but all the online
help documentation on how to get java applets working in Linux still
refers to that directory.
