Description Heiko Adams 2007-06-09 17:29:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Since it's not usefull to run two different firefox versions on the same system
it makes IHMO no sense to have the version number of the latest installed
firefox version in the /usr/lib/ directory of firefox.
Another reason is that users which place there symlinks for firefox plugins like
java in /usr/lib/firefox x.y.z. have to modify these symlinks after every
firefox update.

Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-09 21:00:08 UTC
If you want to install plugins system-wide, they go in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
If you want do not have write access to this directory, or want to install
plugins for your user only, they go in $HOME/.firefox/plugins
