Install Firefox on Debian

This is the easy part.

apt-get install mozilla-firefox

Install Java Plugin for Firefox on Debian

Download Java as per instructions already outlined here: Sun_jdk

Test to see if java works (or exists) - type:

java -version

If you simply downloaded the tarball of the jdk1.5 - test with:

/home/user/jdk1.5/bin/java -version

To link the java binary so it can be accessed anywhere:

ln -s /home/user/jdk1.5/bin/java /usr/bin/

To link the Java Plugin for Firefox:

ln -s /home/user/jdk1.5/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
//the above mozilla settings is on a per user basis, hence linking the file to ~/

I hope it works for you!
