With a CVS build from a few minutes ago Phoenix reports that the Plugin
Downloader Plugin is not present. This happens if I go to a page that requests a
plugin which I do not have installed. The file is present in
the build but Phoenix does not appear to find it.

Ok, this is much more subtle than I thought at first. You actually have to visit
Customize Toolbar before you can see this! Steps to reproduce:

1) Launch Phoenix and go to Customize Toolbar
2) Click OK
3) Go to a website that needs a plugin you don't have (java in my case).

Result: The message about missing Plugin Downloader Plugin appears. If steps 1-2
are ignored it doesn't happen.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021012 Phoenix/0.3

The circumstances where this happens seem to be unpredictable. For example, I
went to the following page (Java applet):

I got the "plugin downloader plugin" message. After quitting Phoenix and
restarting, I was able to go to that page and view the applet.

I also noticed that PDF files sometimes stop working in the Acrobat plugin;
instead Phoenix asks me to download them.

When this happens, if you go to about:plugins you will see the message "No
plug-ins are installed."

If it wasn't clear in my previous message: I do have Java installed and working.
I did not do the Customize Toolbar steps that André proposed, yet I still saw
the "plugin downloader plugin" message.

IMHO, this should be fixed for phoenix0.3. This is a show stopper :-(

Changing to All/All as I see this on Windows2000.
OS: Linux → All

I have not experienced this problem in the last several builds. I assume it's
fixed. Removing my name from CC: list.

I don't see this anymore either. Resolving as WORKSFORME since I don't know what
checkin fixed this.
