Firefox has started warning about out of date plugins.  Using Firefox 3.5.3
+ gnash-plugin-0.8.5-3 (on Fedora 11), it now warns that:

Change the version number Gnash uses to tell Firefox it's the flash plugin. In your $HOME/.gnashrc file you can set this to match Adobe:

set flashVersionString LNX 10,0,12,36

This is also setable via the Edit->Preferences menu. My gut feeling is this will now force people to constantely update their version string for Gnash, which will become a constant hassle. It's pretty obvious that the Mozilla Foundation doesn't really care about anyone but their corporate funding partners. The funny part is they did this because of all the security problems with Adobe's plugin.
