Hint:
Look for deleting files in plugins directory of firefox or
.mozilla/whatever/whatever/plugins

The file (in case it is not a link to another location) to delete on my
installation (Mandriva 2007) is libjavaplugin_oji.so
Looks like jre deletion leaves out something behind in your case
(maybe for good reason)
Else find this file on your PATH and deal with it appropriately.
REMEMBER: This is a just a clue/hint. Not an exact procedure.
Work along these lines.
