I don't know how debian handles it, but Ximian debs for potato install
part of mozilla in /usr/lib/mozilla-(version). This is completely
braindead of course: it forces you to move the plugins dir after every
mozilla-upgrade, and you must change the 'export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME' to
the new directory (on my machine in /etc/profile).
Can it be that apt pulled in a new mozilla (Ximian have upgraded to
0.9.1 these days) without you noticing (so easy with apt ... :)
