We had a similar complaint from our user base. I actually had a bug
assigned to me ( in our separate CM tree) to streamline the user experience.

I ended up writing a wrapper script to automate the chromium settings and
flash settings per user. It also sets up the icedtea so with certificate
and etc so that the desktop sharing tool works without excessive button

Since all of this essentially autoconfigures a variety of 3rd party apps (
in my case, pepperflash, chromium, and icedtea ) it was pretty apart from
the openmeetings side.

Anyhow - thats how I coped with the issue at least.
