I found one, but it was broken. I read the page you sent, but information is only for Mozilla Suite. For Firefox, there is this message.

Merging into Firefox

In order to be able to install the plugin as normal user you'll ahve to modify the permission for the plugins folder of your firefox installatin, probably somewhere under /etc/firefox-1.5*******/plugins
