    Firefox 2?


    Downloaded FireFox 2, removed FireFox 1.5 in etch
    Got Firefox 2 up and running and no plugins working, How do I get them? How to link them in?

    ln -s /usr/lib/firefox /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins

    This isn't working? Need some help. Thanks

    you should not have removed firefox 1.5. the howto linked to in midnightriderz reply relies on debian etch having firefox 1.5 installed and existing plugins working.

    -edit- i would venture to say that it is possible that if u used apt-get remove firefox to remove firefox 1.5, then very likely apt also removed all installed plugins

    Try checking if you still have the plugins in:
    /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

    if so just symlink to them in your firefox2.0 plugin directory

    Better yet use the unstable repo and install Iceweasel.
