Adobe Flashplugin versus Noscript
I make use of the Noscript option to forbid adobe flash on untrusted sites.
So I was perturbed to find that the flashplugin process,
and a flash cookie,
/usr/lib/firefox/plugin-container /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so -greomni /usr/lib/firefox/omni.ja 1234 true plugin
appear whenever I apply firefox -> tools -> clear recent history. This occurs even when browsing only a single untrusted website. It has only started happening fairly recently.
I'm wondering why clearing the firefox history spawns a flashplugin process, whether it can be prevented, and whether this is a bug?
