Easier than you might think.
Finding that you’re lacking Java in Firefox 3.6 on Linux? The steps to install it are easy, but you have to do things a bit differently than you have in previous Firefox-versions.
First head over to the Download-section at http://www.java.com. Select to download the file named Linux RPM (self-extracting file) (if you’re using an RPM-based distribution like Fedora). Once it’s downloaded, and assuming it has been downloaded to the folder Downloads, do the following:
After agreeing to the license terms, just type Yes and press enter. Now making the plugin work with Firefox. I mentioned earlier that you have to do things a bit differently. Whereas we used the file libjavaplugin.so before, now we have to use the next generation Java plugin, namely libnpjp2.so. So execute the following command to make things work:
Restart your browser, and you should have Java. Verify it at http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre&try;=1.
And that should upgrade Firefox for the newest available in the repositories.

Head on over to for the main post. Thanks Christopher!
And of course, a screenshot of the plugin:
Update: Unfortunately, pdftk seems no longer to be maintained for Fedora 21. So if you’re having problems getting hold of it, try the alternative utility poppler-utils. You can find the guide at http://jorge.fbarr.net/2015/02/20/split-and-merge-pdfs-part-2/.
First install it:
Then use it:
A very handy tool.
