On latest code this actually works (albeit a little buggy), so we should remove the blacklist.
I should clarify, we're only talking about Gingerbread/Froyo here.

qawanted: take a look at tegra 2 (froyo or GB) devices and verify if flash is working.

The Flash was enabled on Tegra2 FroYo devices. However the performance is really poor, there are layouts issues when zooming, panning or rotating the device. Sometimes the OS freezes or even a restart may occur. More details can be found here: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/tegra2-flash

Can you guys compare the experience in Firefox to stock browser? In my testing locally there are a lot of issues with stock as well.

Don't block Flash for Tegra on Gingerbread/Froyo

Low risk, but will need some testing most likely especially for Beta

resetting the flags, looks like an accidental wipe of tracking flags.
Flash plugin is enabled on Samsung Galaxy R running Android 2.3.4 for Firefox Mobile 15 beta 5 but the flash performance is very bad and resizes cause artifacts and have considerable lag.
This still needs landing on Aurora (16)
