Yeah, 2015 and this isn't a solved problem.

Problem

Java in Firefox. CentOS 6.6, 64-bit.

Solution

This worked for me:

# wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2F; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" "http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u45-b14/jdk-8u45-linux-x64.rpm"
# wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2F; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" "http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u45-b14/jre-8u45-linux-x64.rpm"
# rpm -ivh j*rpm
# alternatives --install /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_45/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 20000

Now all I have to do is deal with Java.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
