[ux] Define the user-experience for Shumway (Flash ads)

Shumway's M3 will involve playing some Flash ads in Nightly. 

Some aspects of this could be:
- click-to-play
- falling back to Adobe's Flash
- displaying Flash cookies ("Local Shared Objects" or LSOs) in Firefox's cookie UI.
You can test Shumway by flipping Nightly's "shumway.disabled" pref to false, then loading a page with Flash content such as

Our current "fall back to Adobe's Flash" button is simply a button labeled "Shumway" in the lower-right corner of SWF content. The button also includes a "Report Problems" link that we might want to remove from the final UI.

Other questions include:

* Bug 1064435: Should we include an "About Shumway" context menu item (like Flash's "About Adobe Flash Player") when right-clicking on SWF content?

* Should Firefox add a separate click-to-play setting for Shumway in about:permissions or just reuse the settings for Flash?

* Should Shumway show up in about:addons' Add-ons tab, Plugins tab, or neither?
New Shumway UX work does not block the M3 milestone because it only affects Nightly users.
