I have previously seen webex working with firefox 3 on the same install of ubuntu, I have the sun java6 packages installed including the plugin for mozilla.

(sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin)

I do not have any of the icedtea packages or openjdk packages installed.

What am I missing?

  3. link the appropriate plugin files from the java folder to /usr/lib/swiftfox/plugins
