Can someone explain this most important mozilla tool - mozilla-plugin-config

was battling to get mplayer to play as the plugin in Firefox. Until I came across this command:

Code:
 mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v
I am interested in what the g option does specifically as it's not listed when one runs --help

I should have said this:

Whats nice about Linux is you can look at the code or source or script and figure out what -g does. Once you find out where the script is on your file system you can open it in vi or another text editor and search for -g. The cool thing is you can learn a lot from looking at code, even if it doesn't make much sense at first.

Like steve says, its really called something else mozilla-plugin-config must be a link. I can't find either on my system so I'm not much help.

I initially said this because I'm a goober:

You can probably look at the source code. -g i bet it means use the good plugins, g for Good.

It's a shell script - so looking at the source is trivial.
BTW the m-p-tool runs (no options) everytime you start firefox (see /usr/bin/firefox - also a script).

All the args are passed along to:
/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/plugin-config

If you run "/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/plugin-config --help" yo get a long help file but no option "-g".
It talks about only root removing then (g)lobally, maybe that's it.

How do I remove libjavaplugin* from the exclude list?

Code:
[root@localhost plugins]# mozilla-plugin-config -l
EXCLUDE_WRAP:
libtotem*
libjavaplugin*
