Build Identifier: 

This would match the ability we currently have to allow/deny cookies, images, pop-up windows, and extension/theme installations on a per-site basis.

The rationale behind the whitelisting/blacklisting for cookies, popups and extension/theme installations is presumably to let the user choose which sites can and cannot be trusted.

Adding plug-ins to this would allow the user to disallow potentially exploitable plug-ins like Java and Flash on those sites he/she does not trust.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open "Page Info" dialog
2. Go to "Permissions" tab
Actual Results:  
There are options for allowing/disallowing images, cookies, popups etc but nothing for the Java or Flash plug-ins, or any plug-ins.



Expected Results:  
Options for disallowing plug-ins.

This functionality is currently available through extensions.  However, adding it in to core would make this a lot neater both in implementation and in UI.
