"click here to activate the adobe flash plugin"

clicking on this does not do anything.

I am trying to get away from the WaterFox 'click to use' interface which is a pain in the neck as hardly anything works today. Now I have a similar problem in FireFox.

hello andy, if you don't want to use click to play then disable it again - enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named plugins.click_to_play. double-click it and change its value to false.
