Removing nppdf plugin from nspluginwrapper



Hello,
I have a machine with F8 64-bit installed, that has nspluginwrapper for Flash, 
and apparently, Adobe Acrobat reader (acroread) to be in-browser acrobat 
reader.
I don't want to use acroread because I actually like KPdf as an external 
reader (not inside Firefox). So I am trying to remove this specific plugin from 
nspluginwrapper. But everytime I removed the plugin files by hand, it will get 
recreated again the next day. Apparently somehow nspluginwrapper generates 
these plugin files. The result is, because I longer have Acroread, everytime I 
click on PDF file it complains that it cannot find acroread.

So, how do I remove this plugins ? Here are I think the culprits that get re-
created by nspluginwrapper:
# locate nppdf
/root/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.14/plugins/nppdf.so
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_32.nppdf.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_64.nppdf.so

I tried something like this, but it didn't work:
# /usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/npconfig -r \ 
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.14/plugins/nppdf.so 
nspluginwrapper: /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.14/plugins/nppdf.so is not a valid 
nspluginwrapper plugin

I found 'mozilla-plugin-config' executable, but the options says that "-r" will 
remove all installed plug-ins. I want to keep the Flash player plugin, but not 
the PDF plugin. Is that possible ?

# mozilla-plugin-config --help
<snip>
  -i  --install Install/wrap all availabile plug-ins                      
  -r  --remove  Remove all installed plug-ins                             
...

Thank you for any help.

Here is the list of all my plugins :
# mozilla-plugin-config -l
