Now I will tell you a secret. If you go into about:config you will see
that the configuration:
browser.download.hide_plugins_without_extensions is set as true by
default. Only when it is set to false can you see what you want to see
in the: Edit->Preferences->downloads->view & Edit Actions.
With this set as true you are flying blind with plugins.  Why does
fedora not distribute this with the configuration set properly. How would you
know about this?

File a bug. It cerainly seems rediculous.
