The mozilla plug-in directory is generally {{{

}}}

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.

== Adobe Acrobat ==
See how to install Adobe Acrobat in your system.

 * ["Acrobat"]

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 install BlackDownJava that includes Java plug-in for mozilla.

== Javascript ==
 * JavaScript

Mozilla browser supports, at least, JavaScript version 1.3

== Multimedia ==

[["MPlayer"]] has, among others, support for Ogg Vorbis. There is also a browser plugin for Mozilla and Firefox available at http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/. But you don't really need a Mozilla plug-in, if you use the system default player.

== Annoyances ==

The following annoyances have been introduced into recent versions of Mozilla and Iceape Navigator and Composer:

 * Composer prompts user to save initial blank page, even though no edit was made
 * Composer embeds full pathnames, rather than relative web compatible pathnames into documents
 * Navigator sidebar keeps appearing, when browsing the world wide web
 * Navigator home button is not available from the navigation bar
