Installing and Configuring Plug-ins for Mozilla Firebird on Fedora Core

Saturday January 31st, 2004

mariuz sent us a link to a FedoraNEWS.ORG article that describes how to install and set up plug-ins for use with Mozilla Firebird on the Fedora Core Linux distribution. The tutorial covers using apt to install Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java and Macromedia Flash Player and describes how to configure Firebird to use them. Next week, FedoraNEWS.ORG will publish an article detailing the manual installation of these plug-ins.

IE doesn't have a hard time doing it. The web page developer puts a link in their object tag to the download page for the particular plugin. When it's not installed, the browser looks at that location and downloads/installs the files for the user... without them needing to reload the browser or lose the page that they were on.

I'm not saying do it all automatically, but it would be nice just to be able to click on the puzzle piece and it gets installed and starts working.
