Description of problem:
When gnome session is opened
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/xulrunner/plugin-container from 'read' accesses on the file /home/a320750/.mozilla/firefox/kceigv7o.default/prefs.js.

*****  Plugin restorecon (57.3 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/home/a320750/.mozilla/firefox/kceigv7o.default/prefs.js default label should be mozilla_home_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /home/a320750/.mozilla/firefox/kceigv7o.default/prefs.js

*****  Plugin mozplugger (43.1 confidence) suggests  *************************

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

*****  Plugin catchall (1.06 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that plugin-container should be allowed read access on the prefs.js 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 plugin-containe /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2013-06-24 05:37:14 EDT
The alert tells you what to do.

# /sbin/restorecon -v /home/a320750/.mozilla/firefox/kceigv7o.default/prefs.js

Probably you will need to run

# restorecon -R -v /home/a320750/.mozilla

in your terminal.
