How do I stop Flash enabling my web-camera ? I've tried Flash settings.

I want my web-camera to be enabled but only on appropriiate sites (such as Second Life) or in appropriate apps such as Skype but Flash keeps enabling the camera even when I go to YouTube. I have tried their online settings options to fix the problem but it doesn't stop the camera becoming enabled by say YouTube even though I set the options to "always ask". How can I fix this ?

Try Adobe support, that isn't a Firefox support issue.

Yes, I deleted all the websites and reset everything to "ask" except p2p which I turned off.

Whenever I first go to any page with flash content (from reboot) my webcam becomes powered - note I don't mean that it is actually recording but of course there's no way you can tell that when the light comes on.

This phenomenon only started with the current flash update.
