comment Running 32-bit Firefox with sun-jre in 64-bit Ubuntu
As of version 35 of Chrome, java will not work anymore due to removal of NPAPI interface. So your option is using Firefox (were you have to enable java explicitly again because Firefox quietly disables it). I use the latest Icetea 7 now and that seems ok. Another option is downgrading to Chrome 34 or see if chromium works.

Added note that my solution is only valid for pre 7.3 Juniper/Junos vpn portals.

Correct, I could ditch my 32 bit java + 32 bit Firefox solution when Juniper/Junos 7.4 was installed at the company. I could just use the 64 bit google chrome browser with the out of the box installed icetea plugin. Works like a charm. Didn't have to do anything, just default Ubuntu 12.10.

I have stopped using this solution now. The network I do login to has upgraded their software. Now they are using Junos Pulse with Network connect client version 7.4 (7.4.5-Build27191) and that works perfectly using Chrome/64 bit browser and a 1.7 / 64 bit java. That's on Ubuntu 12.10.

Small spelling correction. Long sentence split into smaller ones for readability.

I am using this solution for nearly a year and it still works nicely. A problem I ran into is that you can't run the 64 bit version Firefox parallel with the 32 bit version. I tried to fix that using -no-remote at the FireFox commandline, bud had no success. I resorted to use chrome/chromium for other browsing while I have the VPN connection active in the 32 bit firefox instance.

comment The dash home button icon is an unexpected colour since upgrading. Why?
It's called Chameleon effect. Here is some discussion about removing it, it seems not that easy to turn off. How do I disable the chameleon effect in notifications and the Unity launcher?
