Bug#541154: sun-java6-plugin: mention that plugins don't show up when "Enable Java" not selected in iceweasel

Package: sun-java6-plugin
Version: 6-15-1
Severity: wishlist

This is definitely a user error, but since it frustrated me, I thought
you could mention it in the documentation (eg README.Debian).  If in
your iceweasel Edit/Preferences, under Content, you have "Enable Java"
unchecked, the java plug-in will not show up in about:plugins even if it
is available.  I had it unchecked (for some reason), which made me think
the sun-java6-plugin wasn't working.  And it was unexpected that there
was another setting that would override the availability of the plug-in.
So maybe you could just suggest verifying that "Enable Java" is checked.

(If you go to Tools/Add-ons under Plugins, the Java plug-in is visible
but greyed out.)
