Alter plugin defaults for beta/release until whitelist strategy is defined
For Fx26 and probably 27, we have decided to hold off turning on click-to-activate for all plugins. This will give Chad Weiner a chance to define a whitelisting strategy for plugin vendors who are making a transition to HTML5 technologies but need additional time to complete that transition. So for now, we're going to flip the plugin default state to activated, and explicitly change Java to be click-to-activate.
This is a patch for all channels, using RELEASE_BUILD to set the correct prefs.
