for the record, I have previously suggested to OP that he is repetitive
with this behavior...asking the list before he makes any attempt to find
the answer himself.

also for the record (and I am not the biggest fan of this), the 'Mailing
List Guidelines' linked to at the bottom of each and every e-mail...the
very first paragraph...

Before Posting to the List 
There are a number of ways you can find help within your system. If you
don't find the answer there, try to look into the list archives before
posting a question. This is a high volume list and chances are that
someone has already had the same problem you are now trying to fix. See
Useful Resources below for a list of places to try. Refer to this
presentation on mail etiquette that you should follow. 

Since the topic of java-plugins for firefox on Fedora 9 has been
discussed at least 5 times on this list (if not 15) since the release of
Fedora 9, since the topic is mentioned in the Fedora 9 release notes and
since the topic is covered on the Fedora Project Wiki, and since the
topic is easily googled, it seemed to me to be a very fair response.

Also FTR, Iced Tea in Fedora 9 is now OpenJDK
