For a better Mozilla Suite-Debian integration go to Edit Preferences Advanced / System preferences and mark Use Preferences from System (see ["MIME"]).

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 :

Universal plug-in

You can see :

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

See also :

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.
