somehow Firefox in SuSE 9.3 supports 32bit plugins on x86_64.
Which plugins? Some plugins like mozplugger have a separate native
binary plugin, and that runs a separate process for the media. If it is
running a separate process then that is one possible explanation of how
they did it.
The firefox-bin executable is really a 64bit binary, and
I couldn't guess how they did it by examining the files
in the binary package.
Could we do something similar in Fedora? If needed, I'm
volunteering to dissect SuSE's SRPM to extract the patch.
If you could post URLs to their .src.rpm that would be handy.
