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 was speaking about how it should be easy for the user to do.

The problem you're talking about is partially mozilla's problem (but mostly the plugin manufacturers) All Mozilla needs to do is provide some way of saying to the plugin manufacturers "I'm installed and I'm over here!" Does the linux version not do this? (In windows it adds a registry entry)
