In bug 828216 we discovered that the Sibelius Scorch plugin is no longer compatible with Firefox 18 and newer on Mac OS X because we removed support for the very old quickdraw graphics model for NPAPI plugins. This plugin now crashes and all versions should be hardblocked in Firefox 18 and newer on Mac. The plugin does not need to be blocked on Windows.

smichaud, can you provide the about:plugins data for the plugin so that Jorge can construct the blocklist item?

Thanks for jumping on this all. Let's push this out on Monday, so that users aren't impacted when we unthrottle again later this week.
