Ever confirmed: true
Whiteboard: needs about:plugins data, needs transition plan → application complete
Application accepted for this cycle. This debated whether to accept this: since this is not a plugin that provides general web functionality, a plugin is not the right technology. Expect that we will not renew this whitelist request when it comes up for renewal in 4 months.
Whiteboard: application complete → application complete - accepted
This has landed in Nightly builds. Please download a nightly build from http://nightly.mozilla.org/. Using a fresh profile, verify that the plugin activates by default and shows as "Always Activate" in the Firefox addon manager.
