I recommend to take a look at the diagnostic page . If you get an error message that everything is installed okay, but you have to clear the plugin cache, then just run the following command to resolve this problem:
sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins

If the diagnostic page itself doesn't help you can also create a log by closing all browser windows, and then starting your browser from a terminal, for example with:
firefox &> pipelight.log

If nothing of these ideas helps you to find the problem please attach the log (for example upload to ) and provide some more details, like for example which distro and installation instructions you used.
