The more tabs I open, yahoo then maps, for eg., the worse the problem becomes until I cannot see forms to be filled in and maps do not display at all.  I can't even see ads, and I know the advertisers won't be happy with that.  I tried the exact same steps, sites, and tabs with Safari and the problem does not appear.  
If the issue is a plug in problem, then Firefox should go find the plug in needed and install it.  The plug in finder is practically useless because there are so many available and a user has to guess which category to explore using categories names that aren't in most users' vocabularly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

2. go to maps
3. blank screen
Actual Results:  
no pictures display

Expected Results:  
it should show me maps like it used to in older versions and like Safari does for yahoo maps.  If I lack a plug in, the browser should tell me what I lack, fetch it, and install it.  The browser shouldn't just display a Q? - I don't know what that means because I'm just an average user.  We don't get the whole search and install thing because we don't think like you guys.
