Two tweaks here: it looks like he's using a completely 32 bit system,
in which case drop the .x68_64. Also it looks like Firefox has been
installed from tarball he may need to set up the plugin link manually.
It would be possible to connect it up to alternatives by symlinking
further from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ to the location
for the installed Firefox.
