Can you elaborate on what plugins you are trying to use and how you installed them?

You may try the following steps:
1. su -c'yum remove firefox'
this will remove the current installation of firefox
2. delete a hidden directory named .mozilla or .firefox (note the dot in front of directory name) in home directory.
3. su -c'yum install firefox'
this will install firefox again in your system.
4. su -c'yum update firefox'
this will update firefox.
