You're right. I wasn't aware of this directory. The funny thing
is: the flash-plugin did a symbolic link to the .so there, but firefox
doesn't recognize it (It also doesn't find the java-plugin that is

In the .mozilla/plugin it works, but that'S not what I want.
For the time being I will put a symlink to the
/usr/lib/mozilla-direcotry into the firefox-3-directory (now all ther
plugins are recognized)
After I did "yum upgrade" yesterday, it looks like my Plug Ins for Firefox are all there. Edit > Preferences > Main > Add Ons > Plug Ins
Shockwave Flash and other plug ins are shown there, in Firefox 3.
