That's exactly the problem - until very recently, both Mozilla and  
Firefox linked to libXt by default. Now Firefox does not anymore. So  
our new version links libXt directly into the squeak plugin. It  
should be sufficient to install the new plugin, and manually run  
npsqueakregister. Or even manually create the symlinks from  
npsqueak.so into your browser's plugins directory (that's all  
npsqueakregister does).
