Re: No sound on Firefox with kernel 220.127.116.11-1.fc15.x86_64
Most plugins, like the DivX one, comes from the totem plugins (package totem-mozplugin) which makes totem play media files in firefox (depending on which kind of files it's actually able to play, which depends on which gstreamer plugin packages you have installed).
Other plugins, like the free java one (icedtea), are also dependent on a package.
So these plugins can only be updated from the package system.
Other plugins that are from external sources like java from Oracle or Flash from Adobe, you can check if they're up-to-date by going to tools>add-ons>plugins and clicking the link to check to see if they're up-to-date.
As for your specific problem, I don't have it here as I don't have Flash installed. If I need to use Flash then I open Google Chrome, which has Flash built-in.
So all-in-all the divx plugin depends probably on one of the gstreamer-plugins packages but it's also very probable that the issue is with the Flash plugin as specially the latest version is quite buggy and they won't update it anymore.
