Firefox doesn't add the installed Silverlight or Flash plugins

Ever since Firefox updated to 17.0.1, the flash and silverlight plugins just disappeared. I tried to clean installing the flash player, it did not work. I tried clean installing an earlier version of flash player, that did not work either. The plugin manager is less than useless as it says the plugin has been successfully installed yet I cannot use Netflix nor any flash video. I did all of the above once again with all plugins and addons disabled, and still nothing happened.

This is getting really frustrating and I am in fact contemplating moving to chrome after the string of crappy, forced updates mozilla has shoved down my throat... PLEASE HELP!
