Firefox 18 directory structure Explain please (linux and windows)
Please explain or point to where it is explained the structure of firefox 18. The reason I am asking this is that there are firefox folders all over the place. I need to know where the plugin folder is so that I can create a symbolic link to the java plugin
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
- The Totem 3.4.3 plugin handles video and audio streams.
- DivX Web Player version 188.8.131.52
- This plug-in detects the presence of iTunes when opening iTunes Store URLs in a web page with Firefox.
- This plugin provides integration with Gnome Shell for live extension enabling and disabling. It can be used only by extensions.gnome.org
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0
There is not one single location where all plugin files are stored. Plugins may be in the user's currently active profile folder (e.g., installed as part of an extension), or in the Firefox program folder (e.g., C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\), or in another folder referenced in the Windows registry which could be a program folder (e.g., QuickTime) or in the Windows folder (e.g., Flash).
Why do you need to create a symbolic link to a plugin?
