Cool Mozilla Plug-Ins


Where is the best place to get plug-ins for mozilla? Ex. Flash, Java, and all the cool graphic stuff. I would like to view flash movies and java applets. I did a goodle for this with no luck. Maybe someone has a link? Thanks!

Good question! Also, how do you actually plug 'em in to Mozilla?

Dense, I know.

In Mozilla, go to 'Help' then 'about plug' ins. There is a link to get the plug ins there.

If not post back and I'll boot to Mandrake and get the link. I'm in Gentoo compiling at the moment.

Thanks dalek, The netscape link under "about Plug-ins" has links to some of the plug-ins. Id dont have one for Java however. I am searching the dreaded Sun homepage right now. Any ideas for the java plugin? Thanks again!

Well on my Gentoo problem. I figure if all else fails I'll do this

Code:
rm -rf /
That will fix it. After I reinstall.

Well when I am in command line, init 3 or no windoze, then it works fine. But if I am in windoze or x and open a console then it won't work. I think it is a problem with x though. I just upgraded the system so there may be a bug.

It is really easy to upgrade. You type in emerge -u system. It then upgrades all the stuff you have installed. That is neat.

I'll update again in a few days. If it is a bug then they will likely have it fixed.

Have you ever tryed Apt-Get. Its a advanced packet manager that is awsome in my opinion. I was always messing up my updates and installs. Now I just apt-get it and its done. No bugs for my yet. Just a thought for you.

I haven't tried that one. It probably would have installed it anyway. I may have done something too.

May check it out though.
