How do I disable "allow and remember" altogether?

I have Flash set to "ask to activate," which keeps content from running in other tabs without my knowing, and keeps unwanted audio from coming up in newly-opened tabs before I'm ready for it (volume turned down, headphones in, my attention on the accompanying video, whatever)

The problem is that every time I click a flash element to activate it, instead of just activating, it pops up with the panel asking whether to allow it on the page, with the "allow now" and "allow and remember" buttons. I *never* want to "allow and remember," and would like to avoid this extra click every single time in order to open the flash content. Is there any way to disable this prompt, and instead just have Firefox assume "allow now" when I click the element panel?

As an aside, I'd also like if Firefox would consider "now" to be "until this tab closes," not "for the rest of this session no matter how many times the tab is closed or reloaded," though if I can at least get rid of that extra click that'd be fine :)
