Description Ben Levenson 2008-05-09 13:57:26 EDT
Description of problem:
32-bit browser on x86_64 does not see *any* plugins

firefox-3.0-0.beta5.6.el5.x86_64
firefox-3.0-0.beta5.6.el5.i386
flash-plugin-9.0.124.0-1.el5.i386
acroread-plugin-8.1.2-1.el5.3.i386
java-1.4.2-ibm-plugin-1.4.2.10-1jpp.2.el5.i386
java-1.4.2-ibm-1.4.2.10-1jpp.2.el5.i386
java-1.4.2-ibm-1.4.2.10-1jpp.2.el5.x86_64

$ ls /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
libflashplayer.so  libjavaplugin.so  nppdf.so

$ ls /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
libtotem-basic-plugin.so     libtotem-gmp-plugin.xpt
libtotem-basic-plugin.xpt    libtotem-mully-plugin.so
libtotem-complex-plugin.so   libtotem-mully-plugin.xpt
libtotem-complex-plugin.xpt  libtotem-narrowspace-plugin.so
libtotem-gmp-plugin.so       libtotem-narrowspace-plugin.xpt

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install ff.i386 and ff.x86_64 + some plugins
2. start ff.x86_64 - plugins work
3. start ff.i386 - about:plugins reports that no plugins are installed.
Comment 1 Ben Levenson 2008-05-09 14:20:34 EDT
the plugins are initialized as expected if i edit /usr/bin/firefox to look
in /usr/lib and not /usr/lib64
