I dont think that FAQ holds true with XULRunner 24 any longer. As I said, the former default plugin location (xulrunner/plugins) is not searched at all. Rather, globally installed Firefox plugins are automatically enabled even for the embedded XULRunner. My assumption is (at least under Windows) that plugin registration happens through the Windows registry only.

BTW, under XULRunner 24, XPCOM components are also not automatically loaded. We had to add (native) code to access the nsIComponentRegistrar and force it to autoload from the xulrunner/components directory. According to Benjamin Smedberg (and the related webcontent), the whole component registration process has changed alot.
