In fact all that should be automatic even with Firefox3 (at least for
plugins handled by nspluginwrapper). The best solution is just to rm
the files located in the ~/.mozilla/plugins/ directory then:
% nspluginwrapper -v -a -i
and don't forget to mount /usr/compat/linux/proc (well read
for more details).
Launch Firefox3 and type about:plugins in the URL bar, something like:
File name: /home/kline/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r152
