Default Java applets in Iceweasel on Debian amd64

On my new laptop, i am running Debian Lenny/Sid AMD64 and i'am very pleased with it. It is fast, stable and it provides everything i need. I switched completely to Linux (now also on the desktop), and i do not miss Windows one single day!

Everything is working great, except one thing:
I can't run Java applets in Iceweasel. I've tried the Debian package icedtea-gcjwebplugin but it does not always work.

Can someone give me some information, what i have to do to run Java applets succesfully in Iceweasel on Debian AMD64?

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried to install the sun-java6* packages?

Looks ok. When you search for mozilla in Synaptic, are there any Java plugins?

Default Java on 64bit browser Iceweasel

I did not find any java related package by using the search string "Mozilla". The problem is that there is no java6-plugin package available for amd64.
I decided to install icedtea-gcjwebplugin package again. Now it's working quiet good! First. not, probably i did not restart Iceweasel after the first installation.

About IcedTea:
IcedTea provides a working browser plugin for 64-bit browsers under 64-bit Linux. This makes it suitable to enable support for Java applets in 64-bit Firefox, so also Iceweasel.
