Java plugin for firefox on Fedora 15

I have 64bit Firefox installed without any java plugins. Ive been trying to install the plugin, but each tutorial ive followed makes firefox crash when I try to load an applet.

I have JDK 7 installed on my computer. Java works fine outside of firefox. Is is possible to install the plugin separately from the jvm/jdk?

I tried the instructions these instructions but it didnt help.

mjmwired.net guides (there's a link if you click that yellow setup guides link) tells how to install java (sun java) and get it working in firefox.

alternatives --config libjavaplugin.so.x86_64
worked and let me select Java 7

Thanks
