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.

I don't think you've described that quite right, and the difference is significant. When the plugin isn't installed, IE (or whichever browser) downloads the plugin installer and runs it. It's the plugin that does the work of "plugging in" into the browser, not the browser. The problem for Firebird is that the plugins don't support it specifically.
