firefox 3.0.13 plugins-not an RPM


I want to use the new firefox-3.0.13 tarball that was released 7/31. I extracted it and am running firefox-3.0.13 as I type but I don't have any plugins. I am on an x86_64 and iced tea java is installed with a bunch of other presto plugins in firefox 3.5.x. How can I link these plugins to firefox-3.0.13?

so I have to re-install software that's already on my computer? Wouldn't those plugins conflict with what yum already downloaded?

ok-I figured out how to make a symbolic link for java with this:

mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.so


Verify by starting firefox and type aboutlugins in the URL line.

How do I do this with my installed Iced Tea Java?

I got it! I did this:


I downloaded firefox 3.0.13 here:

mozilla2.snt.utwente.nl/firefox/releases/3.0.13/linux-i686/en-US/firefox-3.0.13.tar.bz2


This Firefox is 32 bit so you will need a 32 bit version of the sun java package:

wget -c http://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP....x-i586-rpm.bin


As root:


sh jre-6u16-linux-i586-rpm.bin

As user:

cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_16/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so

verify in firefox 3.0.13 URL line:

sh ~/firefox/firefox
about:plugins
