If you are using Mageia with KDE, the other web browser might well be KDE's Konqueror. Help-->About should tell you more. If it is, to the best of my knowledge, Firefox plugins do not work with Konqueror.

Ephiphany at least used to be the default Gnome browser.

Check the menu settings. In KDE, at least, you can change the menu to show "application names" instead of "application type."

I had a thought this morning. You could find out what the browser is by using ps.

With the application not running, run ps -A and pipe the output to a file:

Code:
ps -A > somefile.txt
Then start the browser and do the same thing using a different file name.

Then you could compare the two files in a text editor or by using something like diff or meld. The name of the browser application should appear in the second file and not in the first.

Code:
diff somefile.txt someotherfile.txt

The browser called "Web" is shipped with Mageia GNOME along with Firefox. This browser was named Epiphany prior to GNOME 3.4 and still has "Epiphany" as the package name in Mageia and many other distros.
