Description of problem:
When a user that has a umask of 0077 runs /usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config, the files in /usr/{lib,lib64}/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/ get permissions based on the same umask. This can lead to those files being unreadable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. su -
2. umask 077
3. /usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config -i -f
4. ls -l /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so
Actual results:
nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so has permissions 700

Expected results:
nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so has permissions 755
