The plugin which is used is that which has the most recent time-stamp. Try
executing the following commands:
sudo touch /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nphelix.so
sudo touch /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nphelix.xpt
sudo touch /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/nphelix.so
sudo touch /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/nphelix.xpt
Entering the URL "about:plugins" will list your plugins in the same order
that they are used.
