-It is possible to ask icedtea-web to defer to a separate java runtime and use that to run jnlp code, instead of its own accompanying runtime? Does it default to a separate java runtime anyway?

-I have had some issues understanding the examples material.  If a client PC wants icedtea-web to be running in the background, so that a web browser will open a  jnlp program, what does the user have to do to have icedtea-web running in the background, appropriately, for that?

Does this in fact require the appropriate web browser plugin?

-I have read that iced-tea has a web browser plugin for the major browsers (Firefox).  Does this include
support for Edge or Internet Explorer, or not, or not yet?  Is there a 64 bit Firefox plugins, as well?

-I can't find the plugin file(s) for Firefox in the latest version download.  Where do I get the Firefox plugin from?  Are these plugins built software, and are they indeed not in source code form? Where on the internet do I download the built version of the plugin from?

-Can the plugin(s) versions be configured to run on a secondary java runtime, which is not its own, as per my earlier questions, or do they default to using a separate runtime anyway?
