For x86_64 porteus system you need java and icedtea plugin

Java JRE

Icedtea in txz slackware package (make your module)

Thanks @Slaxmax. Not sure where FF is downloading these files or what to do after they download so I'm onto a new adventure. :)

Found the file, duh, still determining if it is a FF plugin or a Porteus module.

Ok, I give up, what am I suppose to do with the xzm file? Is it a FF plugin or a Porteus module? And if it's something to be installed I have no idea how to do that.

this is module containing plugin, your java is probably outdated, another way is to download actual java from oracle site, unpack and create link '/home/guest/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so' to the libnpjp2.so, maybe you need also link in /usr/lib(or lib64)/java to java - you must find them in unpacked files

Okay. Thank you @Tome. Apparently adding the Java Runtime Support is beyond my abilities at this point. Maybe it will be a Porteus addin module someday.

I have a solution for my environment, booting a Porteus ISO. I put the Java JRE module into my extramod= cheatcode folder and Firefox now works with Java games. :Yahoo!:

Thank you Slaxmax and tome. :beer:
