An 'about:plugins' in Firefox first revealed it to me.  'yum info nspluginwrapper' verified that it was installed.  Since I didn't need it, I just did a 'yum remove nspluginwrapper.' But that's the brute force way.  In Firefox's menu: Tools->Add-ons; click Addons; click desired plugin, then 'Disable.'
