Description Ahmad Hussein 2017-06-18 11:26:34 EDT
Description of problem:
F5 BIG-IP FireFox plugin is prevented from installation because it contradicts with SELinux policy.
SELinux is preventing plugin-containe from 'create' accesses on the directory .F5Networks.

*****  Plugin mozplugger (99.1 confidence) suggests   ************************

If you want to use the plugin package
Then you must turn off SELinux controls on the Firefox plugins.
# setsebool -P unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition 0

*****  Plugin catchall (1.81 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that plugin-containe should be allowed create access on the .F5Networks directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'plugin-containe' --raw | audit2allow -M my-plugincontaine
# semodule -X 300 -i my-plugincontaine.pp
