de-associate plugins on mozilla/firefox

Slackware 10 comes with gxine as default plugin media player for mozilla. I want to deassociate gxine from playing RealPlayer related medias. Now that RealPlayer have released version 10 for Linux. And further more, I can't set proxy connection for gxine. I am on a a stupid (idiotic) universiti network which only have squid as their proxy.

So I want to associate real player. thanks

One way to do this would be to go to the preferences... helper applications, enter the location of your real player application for media extensions .rm, .rmm, .ram and others, and remove any reference to gxine (if any).

I also remove gxine plugin .so file from /home/user/.mozilla/plugins. That worked, but now it is starting totem. :)

I checked out /home/user/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat; it has references to gxine and totem. Is it safe to delete them? I am not sure how the file works, not for human to edit. No comments in there.

You can safely delete the plugin registry file. Mozilla will just create a new one for you.
