What plugins do i need get my firefox running fine again?

I deleted a lot of files to clear up memories, only i also accidentally deleted plugins. I reinstalled: Shockwave Flash, Java Applet Plug-in, Unity Player, Shockwave for Director, Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in, Version 10.1.4, Microsoft Office Live Plug-in, Silverlight Plug-In, QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.6, and iPhotoPhotocast. However, I still can't view some chats. What plugins am I missing? What plugins do you recommend? Is it even a plugin problem?

Do you get an info bar to notify of missing plugins or do you see a blocked plugin icon on the web page?

If you have accidentally deleted files used by Firefox, I suggest this article which may be helpful to you: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/reset-firefox-easily-fix-most-problems

IMO I think you have too many plugins enabled. Too many plugins and add-ons can slow up your Firefox sessions. I only have Shockwave plugin and a few add-ons.
