That's true for files installed by the installer in VLC folder, but the 
mozilla plugin files and libvlc.dll were 'manually' copied to firefox 
plugins folder, and i don't think the NSIS uninstaller keep track of 
them (tell me if I'm wrong); and i have also added that stuff to the 
uninstaller to actually remove old files that previous uninstaller 
didn't remove.
Moreover, the dlls (npvlc.dll, axvlc.dll) can be still in use by a 
either Firefox or IE program (even though the plugin is no longer 
rendered in a current page) when the uninstaller is running. It seems to 
give up on those files because they are locked, and leave them there.

At least by specifying /REBOOTOK (i don't think this option is on by 
default, may be that's what's missing), the uninstaller will remove them 
on the next reboot.
