This sounds like a trouble I have had.
Firefox refused to install Macromedia/Flash and Java.
It started too look them up and said it would install them butt never did.
I finnaly realized that the 
"Verktyg->Inställningar->Webfunktioner->Tillåt att godkända webbplattser
installerar programvara" 
checkbox also affects when I ask irefox to install things. When a program
installation from a webpage is blocked Firefox says so, there was _no_ mention
of blocking when I tried to install the plugins.

I think the menu-choice/Check-box would be
"Tools->settings->webfunctions->Permit known websites to install programs"
in english

Oops, forgot my browser version.

I had trouble installing plugins on a previous build also and tried to solve it
by upgrading.
