Maybe you could try strace (or a similar tool) to see what Firefox is  
doing. Something like "strace -e open firefox" should tell you all  
files and directories that firefox opens, maybe it isn't looking in  
the place where you stored the plugin... Hmm, the JS console may also  
have information, try running firefox with the --jsconsole option.
