When ever you update firefox from one version to another your plugins
wont work with newer version. this is not a bug  but a feature, if they
kept your ff2 plugins running in ff3 you might not beable to run it. As
for running them both as you did (maybe not purposly) will give issues
with your profile(addons ect..) there is nothing we can do about this
for Hardy We had thought about this most of the devel cycle about
keeping ff2 as default and found we cant because ff2 will be EOS before
Hardy EOS and we dont want to introduce major bugs in mid support cycle
so we took the best of 2 evils. Im gonna assume you didnt get the
plugins from Ubuntu so as for uninstalling them and such is not a bug.
Please look for Ubuntu plugins this time as they will be updated and
supported by Ubuntu. Closing this bug due to us not really being able to
fix anything because they are not security bugs. You can set firefox-2.0
as default if you please.

** Changed in: firefox (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Won't Fix

firefox-3 should not be the default
