On 2.1, 3.x and 4.0 we are not creating the placeholder for flash content on a page.
Here is a test page for flash: http://people.mozilla.com/~mwargers/tests/flash/flashembed.html
Margaret can you reproduce this?
I see the missing plugin UI. Tested on a Galaxy S (2.3) and Galaxy Nexus (4).
I still see this on today's nightly using my Transformer.

Since this is Honeycomb only I doubt this is a P1.

So, technically, this is correct. The reason there's no placeholder is because there is a flash plugin on the system an we're loading and initializing it. But, because its honeycomb, we can't draw anything. This patch will prevent us from finding any plugins on honeycomb (and ICS).
Madhava, we might want to have different text in the placeholder for these platforms. Something to the effect of "Plugins are not supported on this platform" rather than "A plugin is needed to display this content"
