OK - Thanks. I'll give this a try. I was confused by the command you
listed for a sec, but then realized from the Website that this is an
example of a command to enable a particular plugin. There's apparently
another set of parameters that will update all plugins in a specific set
of directories usually including /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins among others.

nspluginwrapper -v -a -u

I also checked via rpm -ql as you mentioned and it does appear that the
correct binary to use is /usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config. If that's the
case, the correct command in F8 to search for and update all plugins in
specific directories is:

/usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config -v -a -u

I'll post back if I get this working.



In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice there is.
