firefox 3 problem with plugins

I have fedora 9, kde 4 and firefox 3 (all for i386 architecture). I have a problem with plugins in firefox (almost all of them, except adobe). When I turn on my computer no plugins are working (except adobe). When typing aboutlugins it shows only adobe reader plugin. I've found out, that installing nspluginwrapper and restarting firefox fixes the problem - all plugins work and aboutlugins shows all installed plugins. The problem is that when I reboot the problem is back. The solution is to... remove nspluginwrapper :/ Then after restarting firefox it works. But ofcourse when I reboot the problem is back
So every time I reboot I have to remove/install nspluginwrapper to fix it.

Do you have any idea what's going on?

until you get a better reply, have you tested plugins with KDE 3?
as I suspect kde 4 is still buggy.

2) how are you running firefox?

as unpacked in home directory or installed system wide?
How many other users are using your unpack?

No, I haven't try yet plugins from KDE3. Yes, I can see that kde4 is buggy

Firefox is installed system-wide, though I am the only user on this machine.
