Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): There is low risk of unintentional changes. The risk is all about doing it at all, and we need beta feedback to verify that again.

Even though each vendor is QAing their own whitelist request I think it would be good for us to give this at least one smoketest pass. Paul, can you take care of this?

Looks like Bogdan Maris is already taking care of some of the testing here:

Bogdan, can you please report your results when done?

Sure. We went through all the plugins from comment 0, there were some plugins that we could not install (private, premium account needed etc) or were not available (i.e. on Linux most of them). More details can be found in the etherpad from comment 8.

Let me know if there is anything else we should cover here.
I went through all the plugins from comment 0 (except for private, premium account needed, missing linux plugin etc) again using Firefox 31 beta 7. Details about my testing can be found in etherpad
