Um, yes, well, that works of course. But for Java 5 it says "Sun Java 5
WebStart (default)" whereas if I choose the Java 6 javaws, it says

Somewhere, somehow, there is a mapping within Firefox that neatly
provides a proper human-readable name for the Java 5 javaws, and makes
it the default. I cannot find this mapping, not set up a new one for the
Java 6 javaws.
