The situation is not changed even if I delete $HOME/.mozilla and do a clean
start, thereby forcing mozilla to read the new plugins from this file.

You have modified the pluggerrc. It's broken! Please use the pluggerrc from RHL 9. 

For running Acrobat5, you have to make a symlink in /usr/bin.
ln -sf /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread /usr/bin/acroread

After that it should work fine.
