Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 152029
broken links after update
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:02 EST
Description of problem:
java, flashplayer, and any other type of plugin
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every firefox update
Steps to Reproduce:
not to have links broken due to updates
Why can links be transferred to the newer version of firefox? everytime firefox
gets updated, I have to go though and redo all my plugin links. It is a pain.
isn't there a way to have the update say search for plugins in the firefox
directory, look at the symbolic link and then take that info and create a new
link to the new firefox directory? Also I now have like 5 versions of firefox?
why wouldn't the update remove those older versions?
Wait. Are you linking plugins to your firefox directory? That's wrong.
The system plugins directory is /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
It gets read by mozilla, firefox, epiphany, galeon, khtml, etc. Use that.
