"update-alternatives" output shows that the wrong java plugin version is
being picked (openJDK instead Sun's Java one).
Mmmm, try first to setup with "update-alternatives", but in this form
update-alternatives --config firefox-javaplugin.so
Look if the above command let you choose between the two options and
choose the Sun's one.
If that does not work, you can try with the steps provided in Oracle/Sun
site (manual way).
