I usually plugins manually, for anything, be it for flash, java, codecs,
For icons on the Gnome desktop, I all my own and select the icons based
on pixel size, usually 48x48, you can find them in folders named as
such. If you want to adjust an icon already there, you can right click
on it and select "stretch icon". That's a bit misleading because you can
also shrink it with this, it will select the icon and you can move the
corners to either make it bigger or smaller. Another thing about desktop
icons in Gnome, if you vi the icon located in your ~/.gnome-desktop
folder, you can add the line "StartupWMClass=whatever-splash" , this
will enable the startup notification for the app started by the icon, by
spinning an hour glass and putting a pre-startup notification in your
taskbar. It is usefull for the impatient using slow startup apps like
Open Office. The whatever part is whatever you want to call it, doesn't

I think that needs to be worked on. I noticed Xandros uses galeon as default and not mozilla. My question too is there a way to adjust the icon sizes on the gnome desktop. They are just way too big and goofy looking.
