Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubufox

problem is that pkglibdir changes during upgrade and firefox uses $0 to guess the path to use for restart.

  * preferred plugins are now matched by pref filename it is just a substring
    of the plugins fullname/fullpath. Otherwise the plugin alternative config
    dialog cannot use the filename it gets from navigator.plugins[x].filename
    when plugin.expose_full_path is false.
