User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:27.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.0 Iceweasel/27.0a2 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131115004004

Steps to reproduce:

When setting Flash to Confrim each time,
one can possible get these button configurations.


Allow now --- Allow and Remember.

Block     --- Allow.

The problem is we get used to aiming at the left one only to find you have switched it sometimes.

So please give a stable three button set up, with one greyed out.

Or always show all four buttons, with two greyed out.

This is "Block" and "Continue allowing" (which basically is just a close button) - the "default", safe option is always consistently on the right. This seems fine to me.

The interesting question here is why you get the "block"/"continue allowing" dialog while having blocked Flash in the page.
How did you trigger this? Activating Flash in another tab, then switching back to the tab where you took the screenshot?

Probably something like that. I don't see that warning often... that's why I think it is even more important not to switch the brake and gas pedal underneath ones feet... In fact even if what they do differ even just a little bit, they should be part of a full four or six button display with some greyed out.
That sounds like bug 887088 then. We should figure out what to do about that bug instead of working around the issue.
