OK, this explains why my plugin doesn't work. So the only solution is to
use the port firefox35 hoping that other components (flash plugin

It takes a long time for FreeBSD to support a new version of the jdk,
because this is an extremely voluminous and complicated software, and
the number of developers working on Java support is very small.
