Are you having this issue when you restore your last firefox session? If 
yes, can you check the about:plugins page and see if mozilla plugins are 
correctly listed there?

When you log out from your Gnome/KDE session, Firefox returns to your 
desktop session manager the full path of its executable to be launched 
upon next start. For a correct initialisation of all the plugins 
installed on the system, firefox should be run through /usr/bin/firefox 
which is a shell wrapper but it's quite possible that Firefox returns 
the path to its binary executable instead of this, causing all the 
plugins to disappear when restoring a previous session.

If this is the case, here's a patch which we are using to solve the issue:
