Outdated version of Flip4Mac plugin causes remnant across all tabs
Reprodcuible on: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100105 Firefox/3.6 Not able to repro with Shiretoko nigtly on 10.6 nor at all on Win XP. Maybe it's a Flip4Mac WMV plug-in regression? STR: 0) have a few tabs open 1) Load the test URL - https://litmus.mozilla.org/testcase_files/firefox/6347/ 2) Allow the brief clip to play 3) switch tabs tested results: a black box remnant of the clip window is in every tab expected results: no black box note: closing the tab with the test page or navigating away from test gets rid of the black box on all tabs.

Tracy: Please include the version of Flip for mac you were using when you tested this so we can crosscheck. Thanks.
Wow, that's a bad regression. Anyone knows other pages with wmv content? I wonder if those instances turn black too. We would need a regression range here. I will have a check now.
Mmh, I have tested with 3.5.6 on my other machine and the problem persist there too. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6
Using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100105 Firefox/3.6 and File: Flip4Mac WMV Plugin.plugin Version: 126.96.36.199 I don't see any remnants.
Also able to reproduced by downloading http://download.microsoft.com/download/a/0/1/a0115fb6-458a-4c4f-90d4-cd004a4a8266/Pinball.wmv. Then play it by DnDing the file to the browser window. Requesting blocking 3.6
Tracy, can you run a test with the latest version Marcia pointed out?
Yes, OK, upgrading to Flip4Mac WMV Plugin Version: 188.8.131.52 made this go away. So, questions: 1) should plugin detection be alerting users of the outdated plugin here? 2) should this be in release notes?

Chris, does it qualify that version of the plug-in to get blocklisted?
yeah, soft blocking would make sense.
