The Firefox that this person wants to use is the package from Mozilla
not the package from Fedora. The package that Fedora provides looks in
/usr/lib mozilla/plugins, as you wrote, and also in
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins on 64 bit systems.
Mozilla says to use /firefox/plugins. Would using Fedora's directories
work? Maybe. I don't know because I just followed Mozilla's directions,
it is their program after all, and have had no problems over the years.
