comment How to make Firefox use the newest Java version, which is already installed?
Thanks, it actually did solve the problem. While removing JRE 6 was not an option (I had considered that), removing only the plugin was the thing to do. I marked your revised answer as accepted, although your original post was not very helpful, given the information in my question. @Thomas W. was first to bring up the solution, but since he only posted a comment and no answer, I can't reward him the bounty.

Thanks a lot @Thomas W., removing the icedtea-6-plugin did the trick (without removing Java 6 completely, which I still need). Why don't you put this in an answer, so I can reward you the credit?

thanks, but dpkg -s icedtea-7-plugin gives me "Status: install ok installed", so that's not what I need, I guess.

The IcedTea-7 plugin is already there, as I pointed out in my question.

comment How to make Firefox use the newest Java version, which is already installed?
Thanks, I forgot to mention that I did that: the IcedTea plugin used (that's what it is all about, isn't it?) is /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-i386/jre/lib/i386/IcedTeaPlugin.so, so I guess this is not the newest... I couldn't find out how to change it though.

comment cant import photos with nautilus
Well, there might be no menu item called "import", but your camera should get mounted as an external drive, so that you can navigate to the desired pictures in nautilus and then drag&drop them (or the complete folder) to any place you like. Drag&drop performs a copying (instead of moving) operation if the source and destination are not on the same disk/partition.
