Description Martin Stransky 2008-06-25 13:04:11 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #221356 +++

As on x86_64 we are running the 64 bit Firefox while most plugins are only
available for 32 bit x86, we need nspluginwrapper to be able to run them.

A pre-condition is that nspluginwrapper goes into Fedora for some time so we see
some adoption. 

Also the usability needs to be investigated.

Additionally we need to investigate how this could enable a better protection
via selinux.
