The place where Mozilla is installed is {{{
 /usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin/ and /usr/bin/mozilla
}}}

The user's profile is installed in
{{{
 ~/.mozilla/profile_name
}}}
{{{
 (i.e. /home/user/.mozilla/profile_name; where profile_name is the mozilla user's profile name).
}}}

The Mozilla start page (for both Mozilla Web-Browser and Mozilla Firefox ) is in {{{
 /usr/share/doc/mozilla-browser/localstart.html
}}}

== Plug-ins directory ==
The mozilla plug-in directory is generally {{{
 /usr/local/mozilla/plugins
}}}

If installing plugins without ["root"] permissions, use {{{
 ~/.mozilla/plugins
}}}
{{{
 (i.e. /home/user/.mozilla/plugins )
}}}
instead of the plugins subdirectory where Mozilla is installed. You may have to create this directory first.

Mozilla Firefox also uses the same plugins folder.

For a plug-in, you have to install a '''.so and '''.xpt file.

You can change the plug-ins to use the system default, going to Edit '' Preferences '' Advanced / Plug-in and script and editing it to indicate the folder where the program is.

Type about:plugins in the mozilla address bar to see the plug-ins installed.

See : http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/en-AU/linux.html

After installation, copy nppdf.so to your Mozilla plugins directory and ensure a copy of acroread is in your ["path"].

== Flash player ==
See ["FlashPlayer"]

== Java ==
On Linux, Mozilla requires ["JRE"] 1.4.2 or later ( plug-in application/x-java-vm). Remember that the ["SDK"] contains the ["JRE"] so you don't need to download both.

=== Enable Java in Mozilla ===
The easiest way is to use a debian package to install a Java plug-in for mozilla. You can install the package gcjwebplugin ( ttp://www.nongnu.org/gcjwebplugin ).

The Sun Java has to be installed manually from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp (Sun Java ["J2SE50"]).

You can use too the plug-in finder ( http://plugins.netscape.com/search.adp ) to search in the ["MIME"] type application/x-java-vm). Sun Java supports MIME types:
application/x-java-applet, application/x-java-bean, application/x-java-vm . You can see it in http://plugins.netscape.com/moreinfo.adp?PID=10048 .

If you use Mozilla ["Firefox"], or Mozilla Internet Suite open the java directory. And then:
 {{{
   1. Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory (generally, plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/)
}}}
{{{
      cd <Mozilla installation directory>/plugins
   2. In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so file Type:
      ln -s <["JREinstallationdirectory"]>/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
      Example:
          * If Mozilla is installed in this directory:
            /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/
          * and if the JRE is installed at this directory:
            /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04
          * Then type at the terminal to go to the browser plug-in directory:
            cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/plugins
          * Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser.
            ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32
            /libjavaplugin_oji.so .
   3. Start Mozilla browser or restart it if it is already running. Note that if you have other Mozilla components (ie: Messenger, Composer, etc) running, you will need to restart them as well.
   4. Go to Edit > Preferences. Under Advanced category > Select Enable Java
   5. Restart Mozilla.
