They care that they have fulfilled their contractual obligations to protect their streams. All plugins that Firefox uses run in a separate container already. Along with Adobe, Google is part of the problem: They're the exclusive distributor of new versions of Flash on Linux, they only support their own browsers, the semi-open Chromium less so than the proprietary Chrome. Please save my so far effort : 2 years ago Tried this on Mint 17.
So I removed my flashplugin the standard one I installed when setting up firefox - it seems firefox does not recognise that there is a plugin installed.
