I run "nspluginwrapper -a -v -i" in that directory, as I always did after 
upgrading that port.
I think that you are talking about that, aren't you?

I'd like to add that, from what I saw until now, the problem seems happining 
only with FF4.
My "main" browser is www/seamonkey2 and I had no crash with it and *it seems* 
(suggestion?not enough tests?) that the freezing behaviour is gone.
I think that Fedora still uses FF3.6.*, so maybe the fix is good only for the 
pre-2 libxul/xulrunner/gecko engine, maybe the glue part...?.
Is that possible?
