Did you enable the click-to-play UI in the addon manager?
Bug 549697 is the "culprit" here. Click to play still works, but you need to set the plugins to "Always ask". Any plans to set "Always ask" as the default option? I think that would be preferable.
Yes, but we need to do some additional work first.

Which bug will take care of that, Bug 775857? Maybe we should remove the plugins.click_to_play pref from browser/app/profile/firefox.js as long as the pref does not do anything. Because right now you can switch the pref and then notice that nothing happens (and assume that this is a bug).
(that comment was in reply to Comment 3)
Ok, responding to myself... Bug 866935 wants to remove the pref, Bug 866390 wants to add a new pref that basically ends up doing the same as the current plugins.click_to_play pref.
For posterity, I just wontfixed bug 866935. Bug 866390 will re-purpose the old pref to do... exactly what it used to do.

With that thing it kinda works, but can't remember anymore the options you set for a website i.e. situation with DropBox when I set "Always activate plugins for this site" it doesn't set anything. It reports as if the option is set but each time I reload the page it asks me again. Anyway what was the real problem with the old functionality that someone decided to destroy it ?
Ah just found out it only happens with DropBox, though setting through Page Info seems to do the trick.

For anyone else trying to figure this out. To turn on click to play, you must go to: about:addons > plugins > select 'Ask to activate'
