firefox-32 returning library / plugin errors

Just reinstalled fedora 6 64-bit and tried to get java / flash working on firefox-32.

I installed firefox to /usr/lib, installed jre and created a symbolic link to the firefox/plugins directory, installed flash with installation path /usr/lib/firefox.

Contents of firefox-32/plugins are:

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 19 19:07 .
drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 Dec 19 18:45 ..
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 856 Dec 19 18:42 flashplayer.xpt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2158864 Dec 19 18:42
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 48 Dec 19 18:36 -> jre1.5.0_10/plugin/i386/ns7/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 19160 Oct 11 07:57

I have successfully installed firefix-32 java and flash plugins with this method before.

Firefox-32 launches fine but upon viewing a page with java or flash the following error is returned to the terminal:

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/ [/usr/lib/firefox/plugins/ cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied]

about : plugins displays that the only plugin installed is

Can anyone interpret this error "cannot restore segment prot after reloc:"?
