Description
move npjp2.dll to a new directory to prevent Firefox from auto-detecting it

Firefox plugin auto-detection does not work well with multiple java plugin registered (jre + fx)

jre\bin\new_plugin directory is known to firefox - we can rename/move it to something else to avoid firefox to find our plugin

see javafx jira for more info: http://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-17915
