Description Joseph Fannin 2001-02-05 18:45:23 EST
The mozilla rpms don't include settings for helper applications such as
telnet.  Setting these up is difficult for a new user and is a needless
duplication of effort when they could be distributed with the package (as
netscape 4.x is).

I have problems adding Acrobat PDF plugin nppdf.so. I copied the file from rh7
into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. but "about:plugin" doesn't show it. Tried
bringing the helper
windows and found it is empty (only one line for text/html). Wondering if the
problem is related.

This is a PITA is it EVER going to be fixed?? Is there a workaround for this?
Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2001-06-15 14:51:09 EDT
Take a look at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52441 - it's
nominated for Mozilla 0.9.2 milestone, so it has some good chances of being
fixed quite soon. In any case, IMHO it's rather strange idea to complain to
RedHat about non-RedHat-specific issues with Mozilla when you can deal with
bugzilla.mozilla.org directly

We have this fixed since we use plugger and we read the mime types file now. 
Fixed in rawhide.
