When pluglet engine creates a new pluglet instance and createPluglet(String 
mimeType) method returns null instead of new instance,then Mozilla crashes. It 
happens under Linux and Solaris.

Output under Linux RH 6.2:

I added null checking to PlugletFactory.cpp
It returns NS_ERROR_FAILURE in case createPluglet(String mimeType) returns null
