Description Julian Sikorski 2008-01-29 07:41:14 EST
Description of problem:
firefox stopped detecting the installed plugins. The funny thing is that if it
is run with --debug switch, everything works as expected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update firefox to rawhide
2. run it
Actual results:
no plugins are detected

Expected results:
plugins are detected

Additional info:
I thought that's due to the fact I am running f8's nspluginwrapper with
rawhide's firefox, but updating to rawhide version did not change anything. I am
reporting this bug against xulrunner since it is the only related software I
updated since everything was working fine.
Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2008-01-29 12:41:15 EST
works fine for me...
Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2008-01-29 16:13:51 EST
Now I'm puzzled... I downgraded nss and xulrunner to the versions that were
working OK for sure, and nothing has changed. I even tried erasing
nspluginwrapper without success. Do you have *any* ideas why plugins would
vanish from normal mode?
Comment 3 Julian Sikorski 2008-01-29 17:01:18 EST
OK, more weirdness:
htmlview: no plugins
firefox: everything OK
What is going on?
Comment 4 Julian Sikorski 2008-01-29 17:13:03 EST
OK, I got it. For some reason, Firefox asked to be the default browser, and put
some strange command into preferred browser path. Sorry for the noise.
Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2008-01-30 04:47:07 EST
okay, closing.
Comment 6 Christopher Aillon 2008-01-30 17:08:19 EST
Wait.... Firefox asked to be the default browser?  That's very bad.  We should
fix that if you were using our RPMs.  If that's the case, please file a new bug.
