You probably refer to the drop of support for NPAPI (e.g. article in
about Chrome but Firefox is following cloesely behind).

There are temporary work-around provided by Google to keep letting some
plugins to be enabled by some sites, but they are all expected to be gone
by the end of 2015 so should better find alternatives soon.

As for the original question - I doubt that it's a plugin issue. It sounds
more like some of the dependent resources on these pages are being blocked
or otherwise (temporarily?) unavailable. What does the JavaScript console
show? Do you have some corporate proxy which could be misbehaving?

Just for shits and giggles, I visited and had no problem
accessing it, even on my flaky home ADSL2+ line.
