I think I saw a reference to this in Bugzilla.  If it's the same thing,
the problem is that Firefox want's to install the plugins to a system
directory (/usr/lib/firefox/...) but you don't have write permission.
Firefox could--but for some reason does not yet--store them in ~/.mozilla.
The temporary workaround is to do the additions as root.
