You're running a beta test version of an application - perhaps you
should check with Mozilla?

It runs but about:plugins shows that no plugins are installed.

How do I activate the plugins? In particular I was trying to get the
java plugin to work. I have installed the Sun jre and plugin from the
partners repository.


I am testing this on Meekrat running in virtualbox on Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64.

Thanks, Jim



Put or syslink plugins to this folder
/usr/lib/firefox-4.0b8/plugins

Would that simlink be placed in .mozilla/firefox to 'plugins/' ?

I would place a "simlink" in my mobile phone but put a "symlink" in my
Linux distro, that's what I would do if I had to that is...... :-) .
