Slackware :: Upgrade Firefox In 12.1 And Install Jre Plugins?

Oct 16, 2010

i'm having trouble installing the jre in firefox3.6. I'm using slackware 12.1 which comes with the default firefox 2. Downloaded 3.6 into my systems this is where i install:



I download the jre 6 from the java website and this is where i install:



I create a symbolic link into the firefox3.6 plugin folder using this command:


root@linux:/usr/lib/firefox3.6/plugins# ln -s /usr/local/jre1.6.0_21//plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Double check to see if the link exists:


root@linux:/usr/lib/firefox3.6/plugins# ls -l
total 20
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 66 2010-10-17 01:24 libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/local/jre1.6.0_21//plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 15716 2010-10-17 00:49 libnullplugin.so

Restart the firefox and type aboutlugins, the java plugin does not exists. I went to the java website and test to see if jre is install in firefox, but could not detect. This is the permission for the firefox 3.6 dir in the /usr/lib path:


root@linux:/usr/lib# ls -ld firefox3.6/
drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 2010-10-17 00:49 firefox3.6/

Is there any where i miss or i install the symbolic link in the wrong plugin folder? where does the firefox read its plugins?

Fedora :: Firefox Plugins For Audio Files?

Dec 15, 2009

I've just come from a website that had mpeg and x-aiff audio files, neither of which Firefox would play. I got the "missing plugins" banner, but when I clicked on install I was told nothing suitable was available.I was able to play the files, by downloading with Download Helper and playing in Rhythmbox, but surely there should be some plugin?

Fedora :: Firefox - New Java Not Shown Under Plugins

Mar 10, 2010

There is a thread in this forum that points to this website [URL] as a place for good directions on getting the new Java and the new Firefox to cooperate with one another. I followed it and was unable to get that to happen. To test it I used the official U.S. clock website. Don't quite know what to ask, except what did I do wrong? I following the directions to the letter, but in the "aboutlugins" part, Java doesn't show up.

Software :: Firefox Plugins Will Not Show Up

Apr 19, 2011

I heard all about the awesomeness of Firefox 4 and decided to ditch the old Fedora default one (3.6.16). I put the firefox folder in the .mozilla directory and I run it from there. The problem is that the only plugin I have is the 64-bit Flash plugin (because it is the only one in the plugins folder in the .mozilla directory). I have no idea where the other plugins for things like Adobe Reader an VLC are. If anyone knows Fedora well, I want my plugins to work in the new Firefox.

Slackware :: Firefox Can't Update Plugins

May 5, 2010

Attempting to do so gives the following:

Firefox could not install the file at [URL]

because: Unexpected installation error Review the Error Console log for more details. -203

When I review the error console log I get the following:

Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIMIMEService.getTypeFromURI]" nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)" location: "JS frame :: file:///home/josh/.mozilla/firefox/3xogq1ay.default/extensions/%7Be0204bd5-9d31-402b-a99d-a6aa8ffebdca%7D/components/external-app-blocker.js :: anonymous :: line 126" data: no]

Line: 126

The specific files will change, but the error is consistent.

I have full read and write permissions, as well as execute permissions for all relevant mozilla files, so what could be the problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox Does Not Load Plugins?

Aug 3, 2010

I have a peculiar problem, that I haven't been able to find any other posts mentioning. Firefox is getting confused over my plugins. about:plugins show an empty list but the plugins tab of the Add-On Manager show them all and says they are enabled.It was working a week ago without any issues whatsoever. Probably an update broke something. Any ideas, anyone? Or people with the same problem?Plugins are Shockwave Flash, Sun Java, VLC media player and others.Firefox 3.6.8Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

Software :: Firefox - MP3 And Flash Plugins Required

Nov 16, 2009

I am having trouble with a machine running fedora 10. I just upgraded the other day the latest flash via yum and now every time I navigate to someplace such as ..... firefox is telling me that mp3 and flash plugins are needed. I have reset firefox to defaults by moving the .default file and reopening, reinstalled firefox and flash-player-plugin, I have looked in /var/log/messages and found nothing. What the heck is going wrong with this install? Also, it is for all users on the machine.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Plugins Only Work For Super User?

May 12, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 minimal with Openbox; far from a standard install but nearly everything works the way it should.

The problem appears quite simple:

Firefox does not recognise installed plugins (i.e, Flash) when running as the standard user; if I run the command 'sudo firefox' however, Firefox loads in plugins just as it should.

I've checked about:plugins in both instances and this has confirmed what is stated above. The list is populated when running as the super user, and empty when running as standard.

Ubuntu :: Windows Browser Plugins Using Wine Under Firefox

Nov 13, 2010

Is it possible to run Windows Firefox plugins/addons under Wine while the browser itself is the native Linux Firefox? For example; I am considering taking the introduction to Linux Open University course, but the course requirements state the need to use Shockwave Player. Obviously Shockwave Player is not available for Linux but it is (allegedly) possible to run both the Windows version of Firefox and Shockwave Player under Wine. I would prefer to run the Linux version of Firefox natively with only the Windows version of Shockwave Player using Wine.

Is there some method to achieve this ? Maybe there is some kind of wrapper application, something like the one used for Windows wireless networking drivers (NDISWrapper) or maybe there are instructions on how to embed the Shockwave Player using Wine in Firefox somewhere. Obviously my needs are quite specific but I am sure that being able to use Windows browser plugins/addons under the Linux version of Firefox would be of interest to at least a few other people.

Ubuntu :: Install 32 Bit Gstreamer Plugins On 64 Bit?

Dec 11, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 x64. And some Wine games (e.g. Morrowind) require 32 bit gstreamer plugins to enable sound. How can I install 32 gstreamer plugins on my 64 bit Ubuntu?

On Fedora this is easy, you just need to explicitly provide the architecture:

yum install gstreamer-plugin-good.i686

I can't figure out how to do this in Ubuntu
