:SELinux is preventing plugin-config from using the 'execstack' accesses on a process.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that plugin-config should be allowed execstack access on processes labeled mozilla_plugin_config_t 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:
:# grep plugin-config /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
