That might be a real bug, I wonder if you can try this on a clean VM 
install or a real machine install and make sure that the plugins from 
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins are really not seen by a fresh firefox-3 
install ( I'd guess doing a useradd or a user with no ~/.mozilla would 
also be suiteable to test this )
