    Re: Where does Firefox 3 store its plugins?

    I'm trying to find the media plugins (for all the different video formats and whatnot) that are installed by default with the Ubuntu version of FF3, so that I can link them to my installation of Minefield.

    well, this depends on the media plugins you looking for, mplayer and xine plugins you will find them in the usual firefox/mozilla plugins folder's,vlc I don't know as I have never used it, gstreamer/totem is some thing else, they have they own plugins folder, look in /usr/lib/totem.

    Ah, so that's where they are. Thanks for the help, I now have the totem plugins up and running in Minefield.

    Okay, I did a little digging and I've found the new locations of all the FF3 plugins in Hardy:

    For Shockwave Flash (if it's installed) - /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
    For all the Totem plugins - /usr/lib/totem/gstreamer/
    For the gcj Java plugin - /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/i386/gcjwebplugin.so
    For the iTunes detection plugin - /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9b5/plugins/librhythmbox-itms-detection-plugin.so

    I guess I can call this thread solved now (and I just realised that the 'mark thread as solved' feature is back ).
