Set Flash as Click-to-play for Linux
Flash NPAPI support on Linux has limited time left, it is no longer getting non-security updates (been almost 3 years now) and will no longer be maintained by Adobe in February 2017. I'd like to get ahead of just not having it available anymore, turning on click-to-play on Linux ahead of other platforms makes sense. I'm also removing the Java click-to-activate line as that has been the default for a while now.  Search for Linux - https://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplatform/whitepapers/roadmap.html
We will not be making this change by default at this time. As long as there is a security-supported version, Flash is still an important part of the web for many desktop users, and our click-to-play UI is not designed for this case because so many websites still use Flash. We have other research initiatives in process which may eventually let us change defaults, but for now it's not worth tracking this in bugzilla.
