Firefox Beta adds Plugin Feature

Mozilla Adds Click-to-Play Plugin Security Feature to Firefox Beta
Attackers have been going after vulnerabilities in browser plugins and extensions for years now, as they know that users are slow about updating these components. Even if users have the browser set to update automatically, the third-party components are a separate issue and need to be patched on their own. With that in mind, Mozilla has added a new feature to Firefox that will, by default, block known vulnerable versions of plugins from running.
