Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130517 Firefox/23.0 Iceweasel/23.0a2 (Nightly/Aurora)
Build ID: 20130517004016

Steps to reproduce:

Browsed http://soyeliana.com/ which emitted background music,
so I desperately went to Add-ons Manager -> plugins to disable shockwave flash, and chose "Never activate".


Actual results:

The music didn't stop.
Sure it won't start next time, but that isn't fast enough.



Expected results:

In the past with the Red Light Green Light switches, it would have stopped right away, instead of needing one to kill the tab to stop it.

Indeed, you need to refresh the page for the plugin content to disappear. Confirmed on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:23.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/23.0.

Marking this as an enhancement request since the current behavior seems to be by design.
