The filename of Apple's port of Sun/Oracle's Java Plugin2 has changed
on OS X Lion (10.7).  On OS X 10.5 and 10.6 it's
JavaPlugin2_NPAPI.plugin.  But on OS X 10.7 it's
JavaAppletPlugin.plugin.

Normally this wouldn't make any difference.  But there's one place in
current trunk code where the filename of Java Plugin2 is hard-coded:

http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/0105b9691002/browser/app/profile/firefox.js#l948

We should do something about this.

Probably the simplest solution would be to add the following line just
after line 1948:

pref("dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.i386.javaappletplugin.plugin", true);

This would run JavaAppletPlugin.plugin out-of-process in 32-bit mode,
if it was present.
