I don't know of any plug-in for browsers that directly allow you to view 
Mathematica notebooks.  However, you may use the menu item File > Save 
As Special... > HTML to save a notebook as HTML; this will use lots and 
lots of gif's to render Mathematica input and output cells.

Since you wanted to view in Firefox, a Mozilla family product, you could 
instead do File > Save As Special... > XML (XHTML + MathML).  Then you 
must download the special fonts from

   http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/

that will enable Firefox (or recent versions of Mozilla) to render your 
page from the MathML mark-up embedded in the XML.  For pages put onto 
the web, viewing notebooks exported this way is considerably faster than 
is the case for those export from Mathematica into HTML, since there are 
no gif's the browser needs to download when it loads the page.

You can also use the Mathematica function Export, or HTMLSave, to 
accomplish the same things.
