Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020610
BuildID:    2002061108

After I have been to a page containing content which "requires" a plugin (say,
for example, application/x-oleobject), I want to be able to suppress the plugin
dialog.  In this example, there is no plugin.  I don't want to be pestered by
this dialog every time the page renders.

Possible fixes:

1: Add a checkbox (similar to the "security" alerts about entering/leaving https
sites) allowing the user to disable messages about this plugin.

2: Document a way to specify a no-op plugin.

3: (Quickest temporary fix?) Show the dialog only on page loads, not just page
renders.

4: Show the plugin dialog only once on each URL it encounters.  If the user hits
cancel, suppress the dialog for the remainder of this process execution.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page requiring an uninstalled plugin.  (On non M$ systems, try
http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/calendar.htm)
2. Hit "Cancel"
3. Go "Back"
4. Go "Forward"

The plugin dialog should not appear, since I have already notified Mozilla that
I will not install a plugin.  Specifically, I want the ability to suppress that
dialog, even if the default is to show it on every page render.
