Nope, it's not that. Firefox actually seems to ignore the user's
JavaEmbeddingPlugin and MRJPlugin - if they're not in /Applications/ it's not able to initialise the
Java VM.

It might be relevant that I've had problems with some Java applets
before, where they just wouldn't load. I never figured out why (they
worked in Safari, but not in Firefox), but if no-one else has this
problem then it might be safe to ignore it.

By the way, I found that v0.9.4 of the plugins didn't work either,
only v0.9.3.
