User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1; FDM)
Build Identifier: mozilla-source-1.8b1 Mozilla/5.0

I have built the null plugin source by downloading the "mozilla-source-1.8b1" source. It has generated "libnullplugin.so" file successfully. The generated file, I have copied to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory. (I have overwritten the default plugin that was already existing). After copying the file, I opended the firefox-2.0 browser it does not show the default plugin. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the mozilla-source-1.8b1
2. ./configire 
3. Go to the /mozilla/modules//plugin/samples/default/unix
4. make
5. Copy the libnullplugin.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
6. Open the firefox browser
7. type in about:plugins : it does not show the default plugin



Expected Results:  
It should have shown the default plugin

It is the same behaviour even with the basic plugin. When I built it from the source and copy to the "plugins" directory, browser does not recognize it.
