Hey Gene. I don't use the Fedora releases either. I am currently using
FF 3.7a6pre. Works fine. Does html5 too. You should get a FF 3.6.4
someday soon I would think.

What I was trying to say was the you have the 'bad' plugin and the new
one. It is possible that Adobe 'sees' the bad one and that is why you
get the wrong version reported.

Swiftfox is, as you know, a 'specially' configured build of Mozilla's
tarball so yes the plugins should be in ~/swiftfox/plugins.

Best to you.
