I downloaded Java 8 Update 281 for Linux x64 from https://www.java.com/en/download/ and installed it on my machine. However, when I tried to enable this java in browser, I cannot find the file
libnpjp2.so that used to be present in the lib/amd64 folder.
I used to create a symbolic link to this file in the Firefox plugins folder:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/jre<version>/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libnpjp2.so
This file existed until at least Java 8 Update 181. How should one install the plugin now?
