Don't see the java tm platform


I follow the instructions: At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP), and then click Add-ons. The Add-ons Manager tab will open. In the Add-ons Manager tab, select the Plugins panel. Click on the Java (TM) Platform plugin to select it. But Java (TM) Platform plugin doesn't show.

I confirm that Java Platform plugin can't be found on Thunderbird addon manager neither on mozilla website.

Maybe the plugin is handled by Java now? On Linux (Debian Wheezy) I installed these two packages and works fine:

default-jre icedtea-plugin

Here's a nice java tester: http://javatester.org/version.html
