Well, I got the netscape-plugins package and I can see a few of them 
being used, but they seem to be related to mplayer, xine, flash etc. all 
of them. I meant in a more general way, like opening up for FF add-ons 
such as Adblock and Flashblock (my favvo) and so on. Or have a wiki-page 
where it is described how to write, enable and spread plug-ins (who else 
use netscape plugins now, Seamonkey I guess).
