Recently I performed a new install of the
Oracle R12 E-Business Suite and all went well until I opened the
web browser to launch Concurrent Manager administration screen.
When I did this I received an error in which R12 complained that
it could not find the J2SE plugin which is required for most
administration screens on the client desktop. Since I am using
Firefox for Linux, I tried the initial workarounds mentioned in
MyOracleSupport (Metalink) note 414151.1 - 403 Forbidden Error
When Download J2SE Plugin From Firefox In R12 - to resolve
the problem with Firefox and my R12 installation. The only
problem with that is that because I am running client on a Linux
machine, it did not open the oaj2se.exe file successfully.
I then turned to another Metalink Note 389422.1 Recommended

So what to do? Since the required plugin is a Windows
file, you need to download the WINE package from
http://www.winehq.org for Linux. Then you can install the plugin
oaj2se.exe to fix the browser issues with R12 EBS. Even better,
if you must use Microsoft Windows products, WINE allows you to
do so with Linux!
