I used to be able to click the single flash video I wanted to enable, and after a single click, it was there. Now, I click on the plugin overlay, have to move my cursor over to the doorhanger, make a decision, and only then will the content load. I'm fine with clicking on a plugin overlay bringing up the doorhanger, but it should still *immediately* enable the clicked plugin overlay. The feature is less usable in its current state.
Several versions of this have been filed, but the core decision here is WONTFIX. We want the user to make an explicit decision to use a plugin. There too many ways for a page to clickjack a user into enabling the plugin, and it also dilutes the primary action that most users should take, which is "allow and remember" for plugins that they actually want.

Ugh. It really degrades the utility of the feature. I don't want every YouTube page I'm linked to auto-playing, and furthermore, I want just the flash content *I* select running, not every garbage ad on the page.
Note the firefox-dev discussion. Despite its usefulness for some people as a way to keep youtube content from autoplaying, that is not what we're designing it for (and youtube will probably stop using Flash this year anyway).
