if you've run Mozilla as root, there should at least be a profile directory for
root.  I thought root might also have its own "plugin" directory.  You might
clobber root's pluginreg.dat and try restarting Mozilla.

bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
