Plugin details:
The F5 SSL VPN Plugin is used to provide VPN access to customers. This represents a very diverse set of users for over 7000 customers. The plugin is delivered from an enterprise VPN appliance and the users can access "Internal" resources securely. By blocking the plugin this will severely impact the enterprise support for Firefox.  We received whitelisting for the Firefox on Mac OSX but we also need it for the Linux and the Windows version of Firefox. 

<<For each affected operating system, please copy the plugin information from about:plugins in Firefox>>

comment 4 landed with the wrong bug number: it was supposed to be bug 1194780
We are no longer adding plugins to the whitelist, and this was not really a good candidate in any case. Resolving.
