You can install any browser plugin you wish for firefox3 by softlinking the plugins (.so libs) in /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins into your ~/.mozilla/plugins directory.

Try this:
Code:
> mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
> cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
> ln -s /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/*.so .

To make it work, you also need to force the plugin registry to rebuild. You need to close your firefox (entirely!). Then erase the file pluginreg.dat in your profile directory (~/.mozilla/firefox/SOMEWEIRDSTRING.default/).

Start Firefox 3 again and verify that plugins are installed by typing about:plugins into your URL bar.
