SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/firefox/plugin-container from 'name_bind' accesses on the tcp_socket

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • SELinux setroubleshoot program generates the following error message
:*****  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-container should be allowed name_bind access on the  tcp_socket 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
