Steps to reproduce:

on a Surface Pro 4, when I try to read articles on politico.com, the ones that have a flash video at the top have the "get/update flash" prompt huge and stretched out to the point that it's covering the first paragraph of the article. I've included a screenshot. Here is the link to the article in the screenshot http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/obama-meets-with-trump-white-house-231192 try going to it in Chrome and Edge, which do not have this problem

I'm wondering if this is only an issue on HiDPI displays?
I don't think this is a Firefox bug. I see the same site behavior in Chrome and Edge when I disable Flash (using chrome://plugins/ in Chrome and Settings > Advanced Settings in Edge).

I see. So do you notify Adobe so they can fix it?

Sorry. I misspoke. This is not a Firefox or Flash bug. This is problem is the website's fault. They detect that Flash is not enabled, but they don't do a good job of showing non-Flash fallback content.
