Followed your last link. Stuck at the last bit:

update-alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallation of alternative /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so because link group mozilla-javaplugin.so is broken.

about:plugins does NOT show the java plugin....

in my FireFox (on winodws and not yet 4) it shows plugins in Tools --> add-ons not in about.

Can you specify waht in particular is not working - does your Firefox not run Java applets ?

It is Java 64bit plugin issue.
In the terminal
Do
$ file /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
It this file exist and show "ELF 64-bit LSB shared object" or "symbolic link to ..."
Then
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib64/firefox-addons/plugins
