We nees a convenient tool which would allow to issue NPAPI calls and log the 
result for testing purposes. The place is mozilla/modules/plugin/tools/tester.
Tester plugin is there on windows and works pretty good.

Changing summary to port tester plugin to other platforms :)

patch to support NPN_ReqestRead() testing

Wow! I even forgot I did not implement this. This is great. I guess the
following is not terribly necessary:

-DWORD convertStringToNPPVariable1(DWORD * pdw1);
+DWORD convertStringToNPPVariable1(DWORD * pdw1);;

And you can take a full advantage of the project not being part of the regular
build, just mention this fact in check in comments.

We have zero (none, bupkiss) plugin test coverage in our automated suite.  Poking this on the off chance that it still has the right assignee.
Flags: wanted1.9.0.x?
I will offer to mentor a student willing to write/fix/extend the NPAPI tester plugin for the Google Summer of Code:

I especially want comprehensive tests of the scriptable NPAPI.
Not going to block a minor release on this.
Flags: wanted1.9.0.x? → wanted1.9.0.x-
I didn't ask for it to block, I asked for it to be marked "wanted" as an indication that we'd take such a fix on the branch to give us some shred of test coverage there. :(
Flags: wanted1.9.0.x- → wanted1.9.0.x?
Wanted, but is anyone working on this? Josh?

Duping forward, we have a test plugin now. File new bugs for specific capabilities that would improve testing.
