According to the plug-in documentation Firefox will search some directories (namely /opt/firefox2/plugins, ~/.mozilla/plugins and $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH) for plug-ins. Using the truss command ("truss -f -o trussfile /opt/firefox2/firefox") you can see that Firefox will only stat the first two directories (but not do a getdents ) and fully ignores the $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH. This means that Firefox ignores all plug-ins installed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install plug-ins in Firefox for Solaris 2.about:plugins Actual Results: Installed plug-ins are not shown. Expected Results: Installed plug-ins are displayed and working.

---- The main problem seem to be the .js preferences files in the Solaris package. By modifying them plug-ins can be enabled. However the MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable is still ignored.
What preference in what .js file is wrong?
I tried Firefox 188.8.131.52 and Firefox 3.0 to reproduce the bug, but installed plug-ins can be shown in the about:plugins page, therefore the bug cannot be reproduced, and there is no environment variable $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH in my system.
Chang this bug to WFM on behalf of Pei Hu. Can not reproduce this bug.
Pei: I think you have misunderstood what the bug reporter is saying. There isn't supposed to be a a MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable on your system; the point is that if you set it yourself, Firefox should look there for plugins. This works on Linux - I use it myself. So if it is not working on Solaris, this is a bug. Gerv
