Well that's good news, I think you need to move one of the dirs back
though to pin it on the right culprit... I'm not sure that
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so is coming out of the jre since it
sounds like an Acrobat plugin, so the problem could still be coming from
either direction.

I have that version of the jre installed here and firefox is working
okay, BUT it is not listed in the about:plugins FWIW, I guess I didn't
install the plugin.  However I don't have Acrobat or the
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so file either... in recent versions kpdf
has become a perfectly acceptable replacement except for the massive
pixmap leaking needing it closing and restarting after any amount of
scrolling :-O
