However it took a little while before the box (asking for the permission to

OK, launching Mozilla as root resolve the problem. But it's not a solution. I
cannot surf on the net as root. 

An idée ?
You also can't install those plug-ins as non-root using those XPIs...  I would
have expected a nice error message to that effect, though.
