Firefox plugins screwed up.

    I had to re-boot this morning after shutting down due to a freak
    thunderstorm. I'd done a number of (Debian) apt-get upgrades all week
    before the reboot.

    This is very strange. When I open Firefox and go to Edit, Pref, and look at
    the plugin screen it is blank. None are listed. Also, when I 'run' a pdf
    file it opens up in a new window. WRONG! It should open in the existing

    Get this. When I enter "about :plugins" I get a screen with all the plugins
    listed. Very nice. THEN when I go to the Pref. screen I see them all
    AND.... when I run the pdf, it works like a plugin should!

    WHY does doing the 'about :plugins' thing enable the pluglins. This state is
    NOT saved. Next time I start up FF I have to do the about :plugins thing

    All was well before the restart!

    What is going on? Anyone?

    It's a bug when Java is disabled:
