Relocating Firefox specific content

Should this be moved back into Firefox? Dres 15:40, 16 January 2010 (EST)

The only Firefox-specific content I see is Browser Plugins#Plugins cannot be downloaded; the other troubleshooting tips are valid for other browsers (which tend to use the $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH as well). This could easily be moved back.

I can't personally gage on that, so I delegate to what's been pointed out. Dres 03:25, 23 January 2010 (EST)

mozplugger certainly deserves mention here.

Permissions of /usr/bin/mozilla/ going to 700

While for use they need 755, apparently. Should this be filed as a bug? Jasper1984 08:29, 30 December 2010 (EST)

plugin location

firefox (3.6.13) on arch 64 bit does look at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

instead of

~/mozilla/plugins/ or ~/.mozilla/plugins/

at least for libnpjp2.so I need to link to the correct /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for it to work

Blue Tint Flash problem reloaded

To solve the blue tint problem I had to right-click a flash element already running and set (in "preferences") off the hw acceleration, otherwise I had blue tint regardless the libvdpau workaround.

Should this be added to the wiki?
