symbolic link (also symlink or soft link) is a special type of file that contains a reference to another file or directory in the form of an absolute or relative path and that affects pathname resolution
Something like: replace jre1.6.*_* by what you have installed
su -c 'ln -s /opt/jre1.6.*_*/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so'
You have to restart firefox
On Firefox you can go to tools/Add-on/Plugins to check if it is installed, you should see a Java***something, on a side note Fedora comes with openJDK, but that's fine you can install whatever you want.
