Frustrated with not being able to use SVG in Fire
bird (especially now that the GIMP has gone SVG and after reading about the Worst. Tag. Ever.), I finally decided to plough through the atrocity that is BugZilla’s user interface and came across the imaginatively titled: “Bugzilla Bug 133567: skeeter-s.com – M1RC3; Crash because Adobe SVG plugin used an unfrozen interface [@ nsLoadGroup::GetName] [@ nsHttpChannel::GetName] which changed its prototype”. Slowly reading through the comments it seemed there was no hope for me. Adobe had released their plugin with support for Mozilla, but against an unfrozen interface which had subsequently changed, hence, it didn’t work.
Fortunately, comment 66 came to the rescue:

This bug and all related bugs were fixed in Adobe SVG Viewer v6 Preview Release (Windows only at the moment, but keep looking http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/beta.html). We no longer try to support Mozilla browser scripting.
