Be sure that parameter value for plugins.click_to_play is true. 2. Install google hangouts plugin. 3. Login to google plus. 3. Click on the Start a Party button. Expected: Click to play overlay announces that Google Talk plugin should be allowed. Actual: The only announcement that a plug-in is needed is the fact that the doorhanger is blue.

Summary: Click to play overlay not showing for Google Talk plugin. → Click to play overlay not showing for Google Hangout plugin
This appears to show the location bar icon correctly now (on trunk and it should also work in beta3). I've been in contact with the google talk/hangouts teams, but I think we should be ok with the infobar for discoverability.

This is what happens now here, FF 28.0a1 (2013-11-25): 1. Open https://plus.google.com/ -> the notification bar appears 2. Choosing "Allow" 3. Click on the "Start a Party" button on the right bottom of the page -> a new pop-up shows up, no CTP notification bar (expected because it's on the same domain) 4. Cancel the invitation message -> now the video call should be started in the pop-up, but it isn't 5. Click the CTP doorhanger -> Google Talk is allowed, Google Talk Video Render is blocked 6. Allow Google Talk Video Render too 7. Only after reload the camera starts So, the problem would be that second plugin that starts only in the pop-up. Please reopen if you think so.
I debugged this locally and the plugin is technically visible: hangouts has just moved it offscreen by positioning it at -10000,-10000. Bug 853973 might fix this, or else we can add a check for on-screen, but I'm not sure how many more workarounds are worthwhile.

I confirm that Google Hangout works now if allowing both google plugins from the 2 windows that show up. Verified FF 29.0a1 (2013-12-18) Win 7, Mac OS X 10.9, Ubuntu 12.04

Note: At some point a google tooltip appears saying: "Select 'Allow' for both Google Talk plugins in order to access the video call. See detailed instructions" which links here https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/3110347?p=plugin&rd=1. The Firefox instructions are not really up to date (2. there is no blue icon, 3. don't know what this is about)
