Default Firefox Plugins

This is a really stupid question but I'm unable to find an answer. I followed the browsers guide to install Firefox 8/Java/Flash and I've done it before on Firefox 3.6 on FreeBSD 7.2. When I get to ln files I do not have $HOME/.mozilla/plugins file. I thought maybe corrupt install, so I did make deinstall clean and resinstalled it as a package. Still nothing If I do aboutlugins it says I have none installed.

Is there a way to generate the .mozilla/plugins file? Currently in said dir I only have extensions and firefox. Also for the heck of it I copied my plugins file from 3.6 and ln the files but I still get no plugins installed under about. But I do not believe 3.6 and 8 are compatable there has to be an easy way to regenerate this file.

Edit: I also tried creating a new user and launching firefox to see if it creates it first startup but no go. Also tried deleting profile int .mozilla/firefox.
