Thanks, I had already done that from the webpage instructions. 

Now if I could just get firefox to work like it's supposed to.  I can't view pdf's, and my "View & Edit Actions" is totally blank, even though mplayerplug-in does work.

Hard to tell.  I think the INSTALLING instructions in the INSTALL
section are a bit out-of-date and vague.  Just copy the .so and .xpt
files where you want them.  You'll probably need to be root.

cp *.so /usr/lib/firefox
cp *.xpt /usr/lib/firefox

Restart mozilla.

Good luck!
