Thanks for a quick response!
Is there any way to downgrade firefox to 3.6.9 version?

Sorry for making a joke. In the 1930's a reader sent a telegram to a radio magazine's erditor:

'My radio has no sound. What is the problem?'

Editor replied:

'You radio doesn't have a sound. The Editor'

I couldn't resist to post :)

I make the extension for the official firefox, but I use the latest minefield instead.  There may be a chance I did not set the plugin path right on that version, I will look into it later, on Windows now.

I can't get the VLC pluging working in windows Fx7. Its always a black box. :-/ 
Thus I disabled it and switched to an addon named media player connectivity.

I'm having the same issue with all plugins located in that directory.

Ignore my post. It was caused by a misspelled dependency in my meta extension. It works now.
