== Plug-ins directory ==
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.
