Making Java Work On Firefox and Mint 9

I play a browser based online game and after installing Mint 9 Isadora, it stopped working. One part of the said game uses Javascript so I decided to check on that first. The following code is what I used to fix the issue:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts

After running that in the terminal, i just opened my game again and it went through without a hitch!


Updated: Adobe Acrobat Reader in Firefox 3 Linux Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04

I got a new Heron installation and had to reinstall everything. Hope it works for you. Just open up a terminal and enter these commands.

echo "deb hardy free non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get remove mozplugger && sudo apt-get install acroread acroread-plugins mozilla-acroread mozplugger flashplugin-nonfree

Copying Firefox 3 Bookmarks

I installed another OS on my portable hard drive and didn’t want to go through the hassle of rebuilding my bookmarks. Got help from nice people and thought to share. For Firefox 3, they make it fairly simple. You only need one file – places.sqlite. Now I’m on Linux so I’m not sure if the windows version has this file or hides it. The only thing that I had to do was copy places.sqlite from my working FF3 to my new one and closed/reopened it. I got everything I need. It copies the bookmarks but not the passwords. So you’ll have to enter those again the first time that you access emails and other sites with logins.

Hope this helps!
