I was wondering if anyone knows what the most secure user access plugin for Rails is, and if any of them prevent session fixation?

From the Ruby on Rails security Guide as long as you're using the reset_session command during the authentication process, you should be mitigating against session fixation attacks. In general with a rails app. if you're only creating the session when the user logs in and you're issuing a new Session ID at that point, you shouldn't have too many problems with session fixation.
