From Bugzilla Helper:

Tried to install shockwave, did not find "approved" plugin for browser version 
and OS... selected Netscape, after install... plugin does not work, AND Mozilla 
no longer finds any pages at all (including http://localhost).. am going to de-
install/re-install Mozilla.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to shockwave page
2. install netscape plug in
3.

Actual Results:  as above

Expected Results:  would be nice if plugin and mozilla both worked still

sandy, i am surprised as to why the plugin does not work for you. can u check 
oyur list of plugins installed by going to 'Help|About:plugins" ? Se if 
shockwave is listed? Or can u not even start the browser? Try going to a page 
with shockwave plugin like shockwave.com/games/shooters/faceball3d ...or 
something
and try to play...see if the registration completes (part of the 
shockwave installation finishes later). let me know, thx!
