FIREfox 3 on solaris 10

i was just confused why there is no option for firefox update in the default installation with solaris b79 , it was some 2.0.0.9 . Today i decided to update it ,, how can i , if there is no option for that. then i searched for firefox 3 and found it at Finger'sblog . and the i installed it with pkgadd and it was installed in
/opt/sfw/....
then all the plugins were missing . i copied all the plugins from my old setup
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins...... to the new one and it was working , still i am not getting th eralplayer working for firefox ..

i needed to make a i386 folder in /opt/sfw/lib/ and there i put the link for the libjavaplugin_nscp.so

ln -s /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.6.0/jre/lib/i386/libjavaplugin_nscp.so /opt/sfw/lib/i386/libjavaplugin_nscp.so
