Windowed plugins don't work in e10s currently, we should force plugins that support it (flash) to windowless mode in the meantime

Force flash to use a windowless mode in e10s until windowed mode plugins are fixed

This is just hacky wallpapering, but it makes flash work in e10s on linux/windows. Bug 923746 is open for properly fixing windowed plugins, (and bug 853995 exists for removing this heinous manually-managed plugin parameter array)

This fix cannot be verified on Fx 28 beta since Electrolysis is not yet supported on this branch: I hit crash bug 947213 after browser.tabs.remote pref is set to true. Removing verifyme keyword.
