sorry i didnt find any other category that is more fitting than this.
Currently i try to enable java on firefox running on linux ( ubuntu 22 )
I downloaded the latest firefox version from the website version 117.0 ( 64 Bit ).
I downloaded the latest java jre from oracle ( jre8-u381 ) aswell as openjdk-8-jre.
Some say that a “plugins” folder needs to be created in ~/.mozilla/ some say it needs to be created in the folder of the firefox profil.
A “libnpjp2.so” shall be copied, which is not included in the oracle or openjdk-8 package.
All existing threads / howto’s / websites i could found so far about this are at least 3 years old and referring to firefox versions a lot younger than the current one.
Could anyone please explain how – in linux – plugins currently work?
And if ever possible, what files, downloadable from where, are required in what folders/what ever?
