Another gotya is that pluginwrapper now installs the plugins in 
browser_linux_plugins, which native firefox or mozilla will not see. You have 
to change all the plugin links so they are in browser_plugins as well as 
changing the (acroread) link to the right place as above. Another 
option might be to nuke browser_linux_plugins and make the directory a link 
to browser_plugins before building pluginwrapper. On top of all this, I still 
have yet to get realplayer to play nicely with the current firefox. It worked 
with the old one but stopped working after the last firefox upgrade. I don't 
know if it affects mozilla.
