Description of problem:
The FireFox library path is /usr/lib/firefox-0.10.1 - i.e. it contains
the version number which will presumably mean that any plugins
installed in /usr/lib/firefox-0.10.1/plugins will need to be
reinstalled after every RPM upgrade of firefox.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install firefox RPM
Actual Results: Libs in /usr/lib/firefox-0.10.1
Expected Results: Libs in /usr/lib/firefox
NOTABUG. This is intended.
Use /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for your plugins.
As warren noted, this is intended because the libraries are not
compatible between versions and their library names don't change.
