Is it possible to attach a reduced testcase showing the issue? (online if you want)
Component: Untriaged → Plug-ins
Flags: needinfo?(stefansmooth)
Product: Firefox → Core
The PHP manual says only a session id is sent:
> A visitor accessing your web site is assigned a unique id, the so-called session
> id. This is either stored in a cookie on the user side or is propagated in the URL.

So i assume this is a problem with cookies not being sent via Flash (with which a search suggests that there are issues).
What type of request is affected here? All?
Can we have a test-case as per comment 1?
Is there an update regarding questions from comment 1 and comment 2? And does this still reproduce using latest Nightly?
