Introduction and bug

Hello GNUzilla people, this is my first email to this list so I'll introduce
myself. My name is Leonardo De Luca and my nickname is leo_rockway, I'm a
gNewSense user and I wrote a Python script to automate the process of
creating localized xpi files for GNU IceCat . I had previously announced
my script in identi.ca and in #icecat @ freenode.
Now, I have been talking with someone from the VENENUX GNU/Linux distro and he
told me of a bug he found in GNU IceCat. This is the way to replicate the
0) Open a site that needs Java; you can use  as an example).
1) A bar pops up on top. The bar says "Additional plugins are required to
display all the media on this page." and there's a button: "Install Missing
Plugins...". There's also a box in the page that says "Click here to download
plugin." in the position where the Java applet would be.
2) Either click on the top button or in the box with the "Click here to
download plugin." (the result is the same).
3) The plugin finder service pops up and informs that "No suitable plugins
were found." There's sa link the bottom of that popup that says "Find out
more about Plugins or manually find missing plugins.". Clicking on that link
directs you to  which then redirects you to .
4) As you can see, that page offers some nasty plugins: "Adobe Reader", "Adobe
Flash Player", "Java", "QuickTime", "RealPlayer", "Shockwave" and "Windows
At first I thought this was something caused by my localized xpi files, that
maybe I had forgotten to replace a string that pointed to the right page, but
then I noticed that this also happens without the localized xpi files. I even
tried to $ grep missingplugins * -R in the locale directory and I got no
relevant results, so this link to Mozilla's plugins' page must be located
somewhere else. I wouldn't know where else to look for a way to solve this
bug, so unfortunately I can't provide a patch.
Well, I think that's pretty much it. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work :)
