On Solaris, how can I retrieve or check for mozzila plugin extensions (i.e., HTA, JSE, JS, etc.) from a command line?
I am currently writing a Solaris shell script in order to collect firefox plugins extension information, to include Mozilla Active X control data. I do not want to use the about:plugins feature on the firefox browser to obtain this information. Is it possible to collect this information from an xterm window?
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

By "extensions" do you mean file extensions or a second category of add-ons?
I am ignorant about Solaris, but there are some files in your current Firefox profile folder which you could examine and see whether they contain what you're looking for.
- pluginreg.dat for plugins
- extensions.json for extensions
See: Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data
I am trying to remove suffix such as (VBS, HTA, JSE JS, etc.) and unwanted plugins (Shockwave, flash, Google, etc.) automatically instead of using the Mozilla GUI interface/browser (.i.e., open tools, select plugins, etc.).
There must be files in Mozilla that I can search and extract , remove or change these settings.
Hi Lawrence, did you try the files I mentioned?
Yes I did, but they do not contain the suffixes/extensions, or plugins information. There has to be a way to extract information instead of manually using the browser's interface, preference: about:plugins feature.
