I followed the instructions in the accepted answer to this question and was able to correctly install the latest version of Java 7.

However I do not have mozilla firefox installed but chrome. I was therefore wondering what should be the isntructions to execute instead of:

mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/amd64/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/
sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor restart

I figured out to execute the following instructions and after restarting chrome everything worked perfectly:

mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins
cd /opt/google/chrome/plugins
ln -s /usr/local/jre1.7.0/.../ .
