How-to change your FireFox JVM:

  • mozilla and firefox will look at these directories for a path to your JVM. You need to remove thee Java plugin entries in these directories:
    • /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    • /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
    • $home/.mozilla/plugins
    • $home/.mozilla/firefox/plugins
  • create a new symbolic link to the libjavaplugin file for the JVM you want your browser to use:
    • # ln -s /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_11/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so $home/.mozilla/plugins
    • make sure you set ownership to the user in question:
      • chown -R username.usergroup .mozilla

Speech Submission ap works with JVM 1.4.2 - it looks a little different than when it runs in JVM 1.6.0, but works!

Speech Submission app will not work with JVM 1.4.2 ... security issues - see ticket #192
