The problem was the package manager (I'm using linux) wasn't
installing the plugin in the right place!
I think it was. You were talking about a .deb so I guess you're using
either Debian or Ubuntu. Both install all distribution-packaged plugins
for Mozilla-based applications to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
Distribution-packaged Mozilla-based applications are modified in such a
way that they check this location. Standard installations like the
official SeaMonkey archives however do not check that location by
default, you have to tell them by setting MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH, e.g. by
adding this to your .profile:
Note: The above is only necessary for current stable Mozilla-based
applications. SeaMonkey 2, Firefox 3.5 and Thunderbird 3 will check the
above location themselves (Bug 440506).
