 #17207.
 > Yes, and if you reread that mozbug carefully, you'll find out why you
 should add Flash to an exception. (In short: https://www.fxsitecompat.com
 /en-CA/docs/2016/navigator-plugins-and-navigator-mimetypes-no-longer-list-
 flash-when-it-s-click-to-activate)

 I have a hard time following you. First: The bug you are alluding to
 landed in Firefox 50 and this is unrelated to anything we ship in ESR45.
 Second and more important: that change is not even active due to issues
 Mozilla found. See the updates on the site you linked to and
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1296004.
