Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 SeaMonkey/2.14a1 ID:20120820003006 c-c:8e502ee509af m-c:c676b554c7bb Reproducible: Didn't try. Steps to reproduce (AFAICT): 0. Check that user.js (in the profile) includes the line user_pref("plugins.click_to_play", true); // set it again at every startup 1. In about:config, make sure that the followings prefs are set as follows: plugins.click_to_play == true browser.tabs.warnOnClose == true browser.warnOnQuit == true browser.warnOnRestart == true 2. Load at least two tabs, including at least one with embedded Flash. (I had 64 tabs in toto, many of them on bugzilla.mozilla.org bug pages. If it's a race problem, more tabs might make the problem more visible.) 3. File → Quit 4. When the popup comes up, click "Save and Quit". 5. Wait until the application is fully closed (Windows Task Manager, KDE System Guard, GNOME System Monitor, or similar, will display a sharp drop in both RAM and CPU use when that happens; and their processes list, which you should sort by process name, will not show the process you just quit). 6. Start again. Actual result: The embedded Flash player is running. Expected result: The embedded Flash player should display a click-to-play placeholder. Additional info: I used http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/ which has an embedded Flash player linking to deviantart.com; but (in case you don't see it without a deviantArt account) doesn't Facebook also use Flash? Or YouTube?
P.S. After checking about:config (and plugins.click_to_play _is_ true), either reloading my skynet.be homepage or loading a YouTube page e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD_vLRkybWU (Vivaldi Recorder Concerto in D major RV92), starts the video immediately. I would have expected a click-to-play placeholder. I know there are some problems with starting Flash in click-to-play mode, but the workaround consisting of temporarily toggling the pref to false then reloading the Flash page works even with the bug.

What addons do you have installed? (This might be related to or the same as bug 782644).
The following is in Firefox instead: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/c676b554c7bb Problem doesn't happen in an almost fresh profile. But after installing Adblock Plus 2.1.2 it does. In reply to comment #2: We had a mid-air collision, but great minds think alike ;-)
This is most likely a dupe of bug 782644
Normal behaviour comes back after disabling the restartless Adblock Plus AND RESTARTING, see bug 747186 comment #13 and #14.
What about NoScript, GreaseMonkey or my minimal content policy (https://adblockplus.org/trash/testpolicy.xpi)? If the problem is reproducible with these extensions as well then it is quite definitely a dupe of bug 782644.

If the problem is > reproducible with these extensions as well then it is quite definitely a > dupe of bug 782644. After restarting with Adblock Plus disabled and the above extension enabled, the same symptoms are visible, viz., embedded Flash starts notwithstanding whatever plugins.click_to_play and the domain's "Activate Plugins" are set to. I didn't check other extensions. Without the addons, the behaviour is as follows: | CTP true CTP false -----------------------------+-------------------------------- Activate Plugins = Default | CTP Lego block Flash Activate Plugins = Allow | Flash Flash Activate Plugins = Block | featureless Flash
Now that bug 782644 is FIXED, this one has disappeared too. => VERIFIED.
