Well, don't know if it's the proper way to solve this, but once I
replaced firefox.x86_64 with firefox.i386 (the same goes for
mplayerplug-in), and removed nspluginwrapper, all started working
again.

The only (considerable) downside to it is that yelp depends on
firefox.x86_64, but so far I chose to lose it in favor of the 32bits
version of Firefox (I guess I could install 32bit version of yelp, but
I'm afraid it would demand tons of 32bit libs that I don't want laying
around).

If anyone knows a better way of doing this (that would not force me to
remove yelp), please advise.

Regards,

Andre
