As $HOME/.mozilla/plugins is created when installing Firefox or Mozilla, this directory should always be there. Just because one person removes their $HOME/.mozilla directory doesn't make this a blocker, and besides, it's an easy one line fix anyway. Most people don't remove their $HOME/.mozilla dirctory, since all their user settings, bookmarks, etc... are also stored there.
