Humm, without it, 'about:plugins' was showing only the link to flashplayer, 
now it shows the whole maryann, about 4 screens high of other plugins.

Are you saying that I can nuke the other 8 or 10 plugins dirs I've got?  I 
tried making all of them softlinks and had that working fairly well when I 
was running FC2, but hadn't taken the time to sort that all out for FC6 

I've been wishing that somehow, someone would manage to get it all in one sock 
someday, this 10+ copies of "browsername-version/plugins" dir crap in at 
least 2 branches of the filesystem tree is a genuine PITA when doing browseer 
updates and has been for years.
