Mozilla 1.2.1 versus Mozilla 1.4

Okay I'm in a bind. I installed the latest stable version of Mozilla, 1.4. Then non of my old plugins worked and I didn't see a mozilla1.4 directory in /usr/lib to put my plugins. Then I installed plugger4.0. Now my plugins work (better than before) however Mozilla version 1.2.1 is running again. I want to reinstall version 1.4 but I don't want to lose my plugins. How can I install 1.4, get rid of 1.2.1 and keep my plugins.

You mean you have 1.2.1 and 1.4, but that 1.2.1 is the default when you click .html files or something?

damn, why not just use apt-get/synaptic - it will upgrade it all at the same time, if you want to continue to struggle, go ahead, otherwise upgrade your j2re, java and mplayer plugins for mozilla 1.4 and make sure you get the w32codecs too (although i think that it included in mplayer if you get it though apt) see the atrpms page on my link.
