Thanks, but it shouldn't be invoking it as a plugin, it should be
spawning an external application. This is how I had my old FF2 set up -
I'd put in the application name and the helper would fire up in its own
window. (Just for reference, I was using the official Acroread for PDFs
which I would NEVER allow to run as a plugin, Open Office for all the
filetypes it could handle, gvim for things like C source.)
I noticed that, by default, mozplugger was trying to handle office
documents - I got rid of that pretty sharpish and set it to invoke
oowriter, oocalc, etc., instead.
