And, I just create a brand new user, logged in, made no changes in the
initial configuration/setup, and started firefox from the CLI.  It gave
the error:
/usr/lib/firefox/plugin-container: symbol lookup error:
         /usr/lib/firefox/ undefined symbol: PR_GetVersion
when clicking to a flash-y URL and the window became unresponsive.

So, the problem is there for a vanilla user configuration.

	Anyone else????
