Java plugin on the web is not supported, see Use the Java plugin to view interactive content on websites. You would have to install https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=icedtea-plugin and run the file locally.

Firefox since the Firefox 52.0 Release only allows the Flash Player Plugin from Adobe to run whether on Windows, Mac OSX, or Linux.
