A couple of firefox quirks

So, I've just upgraded to the -rc1 release. This broke some of my
plugins and my theme. The plugins are no problem, they've been updated
quickly and are now available from update.mozilla.org. My theme
(Noia2-Extreme). The version on update.mozilla.org is incompatible with
the latest firefox release, but the author has an updated version at
http://www.deviantart.com/view/4266778/. The instructions say to
download the .jar file and drag and drop it onto the theme manager
window. That doesn't appear to work in Linux (using Konqueror to do the
d 'n' d). Does anyone know how to manually install a theme (i.e.
extracting the jar file and putting it's contents in the right place).
Additionally does anyone know how to install plugins system-wide (i.e.
so they're accessible to all users?). I thought installing them as root
would do it, but apparently that just gives root access to it.
One last one. I get a warning box that has no text in it. From when
and where it occurs I think it's the cookie warning box. It's got an
'i' in a speech bubble and 3 buttons at the bottom. The left-most one
is blank, and the other 2 read 'No' and 'Yes'. Does anyone else see
this, or am I just unlucky. And no, I didn't use any optimisations on it :)
