I won't pretend I know what the problem is, but you should probably uninstall and then also remove the configuration files before you start over. something like this
mv ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default ~/ffbackup
should do the trick. I would guess that this is where the plugin data is stored which seems to be your problem.
