From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.73 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.17-0.7mdk i686)
BuildID:    2000062920

Well, here we are months down the line and still there are no plugins at all for
the Linux version. Given that Netscape is now looking very long in the tooth is
the idea to force people off Linux by deliberately not having any plugin support
? Are the major plugin vendors giving the old (and not unexpected) two finger
salute at having to produce plugins for a minority browser on an even more
minority platform ? After all without plugins what is the point of Mozilla on
Linux - Oooh doesn't it render text fast !

This is a rant, I know. But this issue surely MUST be sorted out on Linux.
Mozilla on Window$ looks very good these days, but on Linux it is begining to
look very sad.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to www.fox.com
2.Go to www.disney.com
3.Oh look, no plugin suppport

Actual Results:  Text only display !

Expected Results:  A nice display.

Get it sorted :-)

we don't need rants. There's enough real bugs in Mozilla to deal with.
In order to actually solve this lack of plug-ins problem:
1. go bug Macromedia for a Flash plug-in for Mozilla
2. go bug Real for a RealPlayer plugin-in for Mozilla
