Latest java 1.8.60 on firefox 41 on fedora 22

I updated my java to the latest 1.8.60 on my fedora 22. After the latest java update, I lost the java firefox plugin. The browser did not detect any local java at all. The java detection failed to detect any java. I reinstalled the java rpm but to no avail. A reboot did not help either. I then used the documentation to create a manual symlink at ~/.mozilla/plugin and voila. It all started working fine :)
