I can't get Java working in Firefox. I already tried with www-client/firefox-3.6.17 and now with www-client/firefox-5.0-r2.
I have dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin- and dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin-

# eselect java-nsplugin list
Available Java browser plugins
  [1]   ibm-jdk-bin-1.5
  [2]   ibm-jdk-bin-1.6  current
  [3]   icedtea6
# ls -al /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 63 24. Jul 14:24 /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/ -> /usr/share/java-config-2/nsplugin/*
# ls -al /usr/share/java-config-2/nsplugin/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 64 12. Feb 16:34 /usr/share/java-config-2/nsplugin/ -> /opt/ibm-jdk-bin-*
# ls -al /opt/ibm-jdk-bin-

No idea about ibm-jdk. Did you try dev-java/icedtea-web or dev-java/jun-jdk?
Both ot them work.

You mean SUN I guess? No, this is Powerpc, no SUN available.
Yes, the icedtea6 nsplugin is detected and working if I choose that. But it is still not very compatible with some applications. As soon as it is I would prefer this open solution more than IBM.
For my case I tried the german ElsterOnline with icedtea, but is not working correctly after the authorization dialog comes up.

Maybe re-open bug 588 would help to get this solved.
For the time being i'm using dev-java/sun-jre for Elster.
