I have downloaded and "installed" firefox beta 3 to my

I have icons set to launch it from there.

Now, I want to enable my existing java/flash plugins. I am assuming I'd
need to create some sort of symbolic link. I've googled and am not quite
sure what to do (my only reference is someone who did this with ubuntu
using apt).
export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/browser-plugins

I typed that and nothing happened. Was there something else I needed to do?

I'm using this as my test site

Snaaaake, it's a snaaaaake....

Haha cute -

In any case, you have 2 other options on the plugins. I did it the old school way:

cd /usr/local/firefox
ln -s /usr/lib/browser-plugins/*

or, you could just use the firefox package from build service and let the system handle the details.
