I'm not sure how the Adobe plugin is a problem.  The java and flash
plugins should co-exist just fine.
Try the following:
sudo apt-get --reinstall install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

After you've done that, verify that the plugin is visible to firefox
(Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins).  You should see "Java(TM) Plug-in
1.6.0_16" in the list.  If that's the case, the browse over to that
linuxjournal address and verify that the plugin works.
