Created attachment 8888984 [details] VK does not promt the user to activate flash.JPG Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0 Shockwave Flash 220.127.116.11 STR: 1. Launch Firefox Beta 55.0b11 2. Navigate to VK.com and log in 3. Select the video section 4. Choose any live stream 5. Observe AR: The video shows only a gray background and never starts playing. ER: Page should prompt the user to allow flash Workaround: User should click the brick icon in the URL bar to allow flash. Then the video starts without any issue
This is unfortunate but expected: the site is putting content on top of the Flash element, and when Firefox detects this it hides the "click to activate" text. As long as the plugin icon is in the location bar this is considered acceptable.
