so i recently tried screenr and screenjelly to make screencasts. one problem, the java didn't load in my conkeror. it says i need to to install it. however, when i tried them in firefox and safari, things were working. must mean conkeror isn't finding it. emailed the conkeror list, got one feedback, googled for help. after some research, i found a solution that works:

downloaded java embedding plugin placed the 2 'files' in the binaries directory in the zipped files (JavaEmbeddingPlugin.bundle and MRJPlugin.plugin) in Library/Internet Plug-Ins and now java works in conkeror for mac os x.

conkeror is so cool.
