How to view Firefox plugin installed path?

Hello!
Anybody know how to view Firefox install Plug-ins installation path by hacking Firefox "About:config".
Previously i view and uninstalled (change its extension name for uninstall) Firefox installed plug-ins installation path by changing Firefox "abut:config", but i can't remember how do i do that.

To see all the plug-ins and their locations type this in the address bar: "about:plugins"

Hi, killer bee.

Both Littlemutt and rap33042 are correct but you'll have to implement both methods.

First, change the pref entry indicated by Littlemutt in "about:config" to "True" then when you go to "about: plugins", as indicated by rap33042, you will see the full path for all of your plugins. (no space after the colon, if I don't include it you'll see "aboutlugins")

Great job, guys!
