Description of problem: New update to JDK breaks Applet plugin

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[gerry@achiles ~]$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_18"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.8) (fedora-39.b18.fc13-i386)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open browser (Firefox in this case, as Epiphany obviously doesn't like Java anyway).
2. Navigate to http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml
3. Observe no Java
4. Confirm this by typing "about:plugins" in the location bar in Firefox - observe there are no registered Java plugins.
Actual results: No Java plugins seem to be registered after this recent JDK update.

Expected results: There should be a Java applet plugin registered

Additional info: Running alternatives provides the following information:
[gerry@achiles ~]$ alternatives --config libjavaplugin.so

There are 2 programs which provide 'libjavaplugin.so'.

  Selection    Command
*+ 1           /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/IcedTeaNPPlugin.so
   2           /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/IcedTeaPlugin.so

Switch to the 2nd plugin above and restart Firefox. This makes the Java applet plugin work in Firefox again.

[gerry@achiles ~]$ alternatives --display libjavaplugin.so
libjavaplugin.so - status is manual.
 link currently points to /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/IcedTeaPlugin.so
/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/IcedTeaNPPlugin.so - priority 16000
/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/IcedTeaPlugin.so - priority 16000
Current `best' version is /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/IcedTeaNPPlugin.so.
