:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin from 'create' accesses on the file .execooooKnBTH.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that soffice.bin should be allowed create access on the .execooooKnBTH file 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 soffice.bin /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-25 16:55:37 EDT
If you want to run mozplugin you have to disable SELinux enforcement. 

So either 

yum remove mozplugger


setsebool -P 
unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition 0
Comment 2 Mr. Meval 2012-11-03 04:10:01 EDT
Selinux troubleshooter says that plugins from the browser do not have permission to write to the users home directory. This is most likely a good thing. 

I've not had a problem leaving this alone with mozplugger.

This is a curious case since anything done via plugin should be denied.

The last two lines which have been blocked in your selinux troubleshooter for some reason are as follows. That would be better than the boolean but not by much. What should happen is the plugin creator work with Fedora to have it's own directory for writes in the user directory. It's much more complicated and probably will not happen. I've been looking to see if it's possible to allow by binary name, still not optimal though.

#============= mozilla_plugin_t ==============
allow mozilla_plugin_t user_home_dir_t:file create;

audit2allow -R

#============= mozilla_plugin_t ==============
allow mozilla_plugin_t user_home_dir_t:file create;
