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

The user's profile is installed in


(i.e. /home/user/.mozilla/profile_name; where profile_name is the mozilla user's profile name).


The mozilla plug-in directory is generally /usr/local/mozilla/plugins

If installing plugins without ["root"] permissions, use


(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 ~/.mozilla/plugins for this.

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.
